On May 5th, 1862, General Ignacio Zaragoza’s inexperienced army defeated Napoleon III’s invading French forces; yet, very little is known or remembered about the events that led to that historic and bloody battle. Featuring an all-star Mexican cast (Angelica Aragon, Kuno Becker, Mario Zaragoza) and hundreds of extras, and based on rigorous research, this exciting multi-million dollar war epic tells the story of this much celebrated event from the points of view of politicians, generals, soldiers, wives and even two young lovers who meet on the battlefield.

El 5 de mayo de 1862, el inexperto ejército al mando del General Ignacio Zaragoza derrotó a las fuerzas invasoras francesas de Napoleón III; sin embargo, muy poco se sabe o se recuerda acerca de los acontecimientos que condujeron a aquella batalla histórica y sangrienta. Con un elenco de estrellas mexicanas (Angélica Aragón, Kuno Becker, Mario Zaragoza), cientos de extras, y basado en una investigación rigurosa, esta emocionante y multimillonaria epopeya narra la historia de este celebrado acontecimiento desde el punto de vista de los políticos, generales, soldados y mujeres que participaron en ella e incluso dos jóvenes enamorados que se conocen en el campo de batalla.
