Happiness and Conflict in the real Colombia
3 November 2002 | by dave-gonzalezSee all my reviews

A delightful mix of happiness in the middle of poverty, creativity, malice, and revenge.

Near downtown Bogota(uphill in the shantytowns) the day to day life of a neighborhood changes forever once lighting services are available.. and a community that was once happy living in unity gets gradually infected with greed... and a shameful sequence of joke-revenge-injury-death depicts the sad story of a country and a culture that can't hardy find it's way to progress.
