A grenade marked the life of Alvaro Obregon on June 3, 1915, long before he became president of Mexico. It was in a battle on the ranch of Santa Ana del Conde, in León, Guanajuato, when he was hit by the projectile that ended up detaching his limb.

Three years after this he was born Luis Aguilar, who in addition to becoming one of the most important actors of the golden age of Mexican cinema, was destined to become a friend of the future president of Mexico.

The closeness that the family of the then child had with the political elites caused a rapprochement between the two and a somewhat peculiar relationship was born.

The familiarity between the two characters was such that even Luis used to perceive when the politician felt discomfort in the stump that he had instead of his arm. To alleviate it, the boy would approach him and scratch him so that he would stop feeling the itch that tortured him from time to time.
