Colombia in My Arms
The much celebrated peace agreement runs Colombia into chaos. FARC guerrilla Ernesto, poverty-stricken coca farmers, a mysterious aristocrat and a passionate right-wing politician balance at the edge of their morals, as they reach for contradictory dreams for a better Colombia. What happens to a very fragile peace in an unequal country if doing the ‘wrong’ thing may easily be justified as the only means of struggle?
