The men in the group fall, one by one, along the journey - in battle, in a barroom brawl, to disease - until only one man is left. In the film's final shot, disheartened and disappointed, he continues to march into the darkness. Is he going to continue to fight for freedom? Or is he going home? Director de Fuentes doesn't answer that question; he leaves us, like the Mexican people at the time, wondering what's going to happen next.
