Its about corruption in government institutions, in this specific case, the police. How the master plan to steal a bank truck finds its origins in the highest spheres of society. It is a good movie and the actress is awesomely good.

End of the 20's. Alfonso a young writer brought up in France, arrives to an adventurous mining town (Uyuni) in the midst of the Bolivian high plateau. Here he meets the beautiful Claudina a sensual, strong willed chola, la "Misqui simi" ("The one with the sweet lips"). Uyuni radiates a strange magnetism, it is charged with a collective euphoria produced by the bewitching mineral. The lives of the characters enter a whirl of passion, ambition and frustration.

Excellent movie from Bolivian cinema, but I'll admit that the acting and dialogue at the beginning of the film was just a bit amateur. But as the movie went on you could see that the actors became more comfortable in their respective roles and everything seemed much more professional. Anybody unfamiliar with the beautiful Bolivian actress, Carla Ortiz, should definitely check her out in this film! The role of Clota (Schlomit Baytelman) was also well received. Congrats to Bolivian director, Antonio Eguino for a wonderful film based on an amazing true story! And special thanks to the Inter-American Development Bank for premiering this film with English subtitles for the first time in the United States. OVERALL A GREAT SUCCESS FOR THE FUTURE OF BOLIVIAN CINEMA!
