Leo is 22 and sells his body on the street for a bit of cash. The men come and go, and he stays right here - longing for love. He doesn't know what the future will bring. He hits the road. His heart is pounding.
The film is a journey of intimate portraits featuring women of different ages and backgrounds who live in the colombian village of Jerico, in the Andes Mountains. It evolves like a kaleidoscope, revealing their stories, pains, secrets, beauty, humour, wisdom and authenticity. Over the course of these unique encounters, the village's everyday life unfolds- it's colourful houses stunning landscapes and ever present music. The film seeks to celebrate and preserve this intangible heritage, composed of words, laughter, tears actions ans songs, through these strong, sensitive and dignified women, who have such and unbridled passion for life.
A colourful story of the women of Jericó-Colombia, a small and picturesque town. This documentary feels so warm and humane that it got me since the very first minute. It's, above all, a chant on the dreams, anecdotes,loves and tragedies of the few women whose lives drive the film. The cinematography is done with wit and heart; colour and detail are protagonist of its art.
