Colombia in my Arms
Colombia’s future is at stake. After 53 years of armed conflict, the FARC guerrillas are about to hand over their arms in exchange for the social inclusion of the poor. While FARC guerrilla Ernesto thrives for a change, opposing forces arise: A furious right-wing politician and a descendant of Spanish conquistadors want to reclaim the country. The peace runs the country in a chaos in which everyone wants to guarantee either their privileges or just the basic needs.
