“A visually stunning and fresh take on a familiar genre.” –Variety

The drug trade exacts a terrible toll on an indigenous community in this gripping drama, a Colombian answer to Mean Streets. The Wayuu people have long held tight onto their traditions, living in close-knit tribes. When two friends begin selling marijuana to visiting Americans, however, their actions set in motion a series of events that imperil their ancient ways.
