DESCRIPTION

Delightful landscapes and breathtaking views. The majestic Colombian mountains, overgrown with lush tropical forest, are the scenery for training a group of fighters and their hostage. Soon training become a fight to the death. Guerrillas are teenagers and their basic existence is provided by the milk cow Shakira, which is killed accidentally. A film full of understatements and constant tension.
