Synopsis: 

Set in Barrancabermeja, Colombia, this emotionally rich drama tells the story of a 16-year- old torn between his loyalty to his petty gangster uncle and a local theatre group seeking to rid the community of organized crime. Mateo exudes dogged faith in the possibility of radical change—a process that can start with one vulnerable young man.
