Synopsis

A gripping saga which traces the birth of the narcotrafficking industry which gutted Columbian society, the follow up to Embrace Of The Serpent brings a fresh perspective, rejecting the overly familiar tropes of gangster movie. By exploring the devastating effect of their marijuana export business on two clans of the indigenous Wayuu community, the film serves as an allegory for the tumultuous recent history of the country as a whole.

Notwithstanding the bleak trajectory down which any film about blood feuds must spiral, this is an engrossing narco-thriller which deftly balances the storytelling tradition of the Wayuu with the genre conventions of the crime movie and the western.
