Synopsis

In 1964, the largest carved stone of the Americas was moved from the town of San Miguel Cuatlinchan to the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City in an impressive feat of engineering. The extraction of the monolith set off a rebellion in the town and led to the intervention of the army.
