In 1948, partisan violence rips through Colombia. When conservative forces kill Rosalba’s husband, she becomes an instrument of revenge and death.
In 1948 Colombian government forces surround a village and kill several peasants who sympathized with the ideals of the liberal party, including Rosalba Velásquez’s husband. The young Rosalba witnesses his slaughter and deeply traumatized, she vows to kill each one of her husband’s killers. Guerrilla leaders neutralize Rosalba’s amateurish methods because she attracts too much military intervention. She joins them and becomes known for her courage and for her nom de guerre, Sargento Matacho.
