During Argentina’s Peron regime, Evita, entertainer turned mother of the nation, gained charismatic mastery over the masses that even transcended death. Her dictator-husband embalmed her body, which became a magical, uncomfortable symbol and threat to later regimes - stolen, violated, concealed by the Vatican, returned but only buried decades later. The powerful episodes of this film probe both the power and the human suffering that became parts of this global peregrination.
