Synopsis


Crisanto is a poor cocaine farmer who lives with his family in the Guaviare jungle, a region ruled by the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia (FARC).

A group of guerrilla fighters give them a moribund baby and tell them to cure and take care of him. He tries to take him to the nearest health centre, but other guerrilla fighters stop him and threaten to kill him if he tries to leave the area. Crisanto is forced to take his family and flee, to save their lives and the life of the boy. They join the displaced.

The doctors heal the baby, but believing he’s been abandoned and abused they take it away, without giving Crisanto the chance to tell the child’s true story of the guerilla and the paramilitary forces.

Crisanto and his family make a new life for themselves. But two years later, the guerrilla locates them, asking urgently for the child. The boy is involved in an exchange of hostages, negotiated between the presidents of Colombia and Venezuela. The FARC’s failure to hand over their hostages is bringing both countries to the brink war. This international political crisis has significant media impact and is widely reported across the globe.

Mono Jojoy, a guerrilla leader, gives him three days to find the boy or he and his family will be killed… This is the story of what happens away from the cameras and microphones, a contrasting view of the official version.
