Official Trailer

Spanning the era of tribal trade in Colombia, from coffee to cannabis, with first opulence and soon decadence in the lives of the local Waayu tribe, this movie is a very real depiction of customs and traditions becoming quashed by greed and corruption. It was filmed on location in an area of coastal Colombia, with stunning images of family life before and after the drug trade.
