In remote Columbia a peaceful Indigenous clan is disrupted by the chance to get rich quick. This spectacular crime saga is set over a 12-year period and begins with arrogant young bachelor Acosta asking to marry the daughter of the clan leader. But Acosta is set a high cash price and to gather the money he breaks a taboo – dealing in marijuana with ‘Gringo’ outsiders. A visionary, thrilling film from the director of Embrace of the Serpent Birds of Passage is part gangster flick, part exploration of First Peoples’ cultures and like absolutely nothing else.
Wayuu, Spanish and English with some English subtitles
