Did You Know?


The jungle scenes were shot around the Samaná river, five hours from Medellín. Because of the conflict, the place was visited only by soldiers and illegal gold miners until recently, hence remaining mostly unspoiled by humans. For the cast and crew, mules carried food and gear and a family of gold miners built military tents. See more »

User Reviews

Savagely Powerful & Extreme...
21 April 2020 | by XstalSee all my reviews

The potential future leaders of the world and their citizens show us how much worse it could be when their time arrives - especially when left to their own devices, without safety nets, guidance and above all love.

We corrupt our children at our peril but most of the time we're unaware of the damage done to them and to us as a result.

Another great piece of thought provoking and engaging cinema - this time from Columbia but the message is universal.
