The work begins with the surrender of a soldier who, together with a group of insurgents, attempted an assassination with the consequent coup d'état and seizure of power. In the middle of the previous shooting, a young man (Jesús) finds himself in the middle of the confrontation between the insurgent military and those loyal to the government, causing the death of many civilians. That night, when the young man arrives home and falls asleep, he is trapped in a kind of nightmare, where he goes back to times he had not experienced, but which were clear, as if he were living them. That was a time at the end of the 19th century, where a fierce dictator took over the government who sowed terror in that country (Venezuela) for 27 years. At the same time, the story of a family from that time stands out. While Jesus dreams of the moments of the past, actions coming from the future are introduced to the dream, thus making a kind of comparative table between the past governments and those that would be presented in the years to come. The second part of the work begins when Jesus awakens from a strange lethargy and narrates in the first person the events from the performance of the insurgent and his subsequent rise to power, his death, and the transfer of government to his successor, like a monarchy. The work ends with his resignation. It is worth noting that the ghosts of each ruler and that of his grandfather appear in the young man's dream, narrating what really happened over a little more than a century. The same specters continued to appear after awakening from the strange nightmare. The work narrates more than a century of political, economic and social history of an oil nation, where each government, its successes and excesses are described. Like that of a family in the same period.
