Based on a true story, a group of 147 overworked and underpaid Colombian soldiers find the treasure they didn't seek; $46 million. The film is a surreal black comedy and follows 4 of the 147 soldiers who were part of the anti-guerrilla "Destroyer" battalion, and tells of their story leading up to and after finding the money. The soldiers decide to divide the money between themselves instead of giving the money to the Colombian government. The soldiers don't have food, water or toilet paper, but instead use their bags full of money as pillows. As the soldiers are recalled and taken back into civilization, they start to use their money for bad things, spending it on brothels, alcohol and prostitutes. The discovery the soldiers made changed their lives. They no longer live in poverty and now are capable of achieving their dreams. Now they hope to return to civilization and make their dreams come true. Written by

When i hear about that Verónica Orozco was in a film called "Soñar no cuesta nada" well... i say...good! But then, i hear about the plot... well, i was not so informed about the case. Then i saw it... and i really think the movie is very good. A good proposal for the movies of my country.
The story talks about a group of soldiers that discovers a lot of money from an armed illegal group. They takes it. Based on a trues story that happens not so long time in Colombia, "Soñar no cuesta nada" is a movie of desire and feelings.
Here, much people has ideas and opinions about the lucky of those soldiers, well, you must know that the movie don't express any opinion about what happens. The movie just tell us about the facts and don't have any opinion about it. So, in this way the movie is good.
For other way, is a shame that some of the actors (a problem of all the movies of all the world) must to have the same people that we see in many films or in TV. But there is a thing that change me an opinion about one of the actors, Diego Cadavid. And is about his performance. I think now he is a good actor. Because as the paper of a soldier who want a "good" life with all the money, and he wants his money! A good topic of desire.
Please, this is a commentary of the film, i don't write anything about the events or the people who was involved in it. This is a good film with really good performances. See it when you can!!! And if you like great dances of beautiful women... you won't be sorry. I mean... Verónica Orozco is there... you want other reason?
*Sorry for the mistakes... well, if there any
