  • The FARC guerrillas and the Colombian government have decided to end the longest conflict in the Western world. However, peace still seems to be a distant idea in a torn¬ society where everyone has his own perception about law and morality. Meanwhile, ex-FARC Ernesto (who desperately tries to change the society), Colombian Vice-President, furious right-¬wing politician, poor cocoa farmers and a descendant of Spanish conquistadors explain the underlying reasons of the conflict, uncovering the roots of Colombia’s systematic inequality. The film concludes with 2018 presidential election, when the future of the country will be determined. If the desired changes are impossible, how can Ernesto resist the temptation to rise up in a justified rebellion?

    Director’s Statement: The current situation in Colombia allows us to examine our ability to live in peace in the situation when many people don’t want to acknowledge or even address the reasons why the war started in the first place. We are interested in what it is that makes humans justify illegal actions. In a country where political leaders don’t respect the people and society is nowhere near equal, when did doing the “wrong” thing became justified? Where is the line between right and wrong?
