This film is part of the Hispanic Film Festival.

Set in the land of the Wayuu, indigenous people of northern Colombia’s lush desert region who are customarily wary of outsiders, the film tracks over a decade of warring clans as they grow into full-blown drug mobs. It’s 1968 and Raphayet, a poor farmer, cannot afford the dowry required to wed the daughter of a prominent Wayuu family steeped in ritual. After stumbling upon Americans from the peace corps who are looking for marijuana, he impulsively jumps at the opportunity to make money. What begins as a simple scheme to be worthy of his wife’s family turns swiftly into a multi-year crime saga of grand proportions drawing in multiple Wayuu families and igniting a blaze of grudges, feuds, and power-plays.


Run Time: 125 minutes
