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

really good movie combines the hilarious with the reality and makes emphasis in how this people sacrifices for this money that was so important for them who needed anyways because if they gave that great amount of money back surely the politics of Colombia would have taken the money for their own goods LOL.......... This makes you stand in the place of this young soldiers who have no good payment and no money, well it is true that is bad to steal what it's not yours but anyways these people found that Money doesn't matter if it was on Colombian territory because if they gave that money back to the government they will only receive a stupid medal and the politicians would've taken all the money and steal it themselves
