    Absolutely brilliant and insightful documentary about life in a barrio outside Medellin, Colombia in 2003. The filmmakers put their own lives at risk to make this incredible video which unflinchingly, yet compassionately, examines the lives of three young people who seek their own personal salvations through sex, drugs, and violence - all the while working to preserve their humanity. I cannot recommend this documentary highly enough.

    Three stories of joung Colombians who struggle with inequality and violence... a sad depiction but a portrait of how much guerrillas and factions have changed the way we trust government and politics. Good documentary

    intense documentary about civil fighting in an area of columbia. as the camera follows three different people, you get three completely different outlooks on life in a world where you may not see the next day.
