Luis Restrepo makes his feature debut with this tense tale of two brothers torn apart by Colombia's modern-day civil war. Wilson (Hernan Mandez) is a hot-headed young father who joins the country's guerrilla forces, leaving his wife Paulina (Carolina Lizarazo) and their child alone. Meanwhile, Tono (John Alex Toro) joins the official army until Wilson's death forces him to take care of Paulina, who's determined to trek to Bogotá for a better life.
