    Synopsis: América Scarfó starred in one of the most passionate love stories in Argentina when, at age 14, he met Severino Di Giovanni (27), the most important figure in anarchism and the most wanted man in the country. The relationship was reflected in clandestine meetings, love letters and a political project with libertarian bases, until it was interrupted by the execution of Di Giovanni at the hands of the military dictatorship of 1930. Likewise, a part of America died.
