In his younger days, Simon Bolivar swept the Spanish back to Europe, liberating South America with his youthful vitality. Now 46, it's time to send himself into retirement. Wending his way down the Magdalena River towards the Caribbean with his servant, Jose Palacios, his journey is hindered by his own reluctance to let his power go."
