Colombia | 2019 | 102 minutes | Alejandro Landes

Opens September 27, 2019

On a stunning, windswept mountaintop in an unnamed South American country, a small group of teen guerrilla fighters form an ad hoc family living out of an abandoned bunker.

With no real purpose or goal other than to receive combat training, to take care of a dairy cow named Shakira, and to keep alive an American hostage simply known as Doctora, the teens revel in an increasingly unbridled hedonism. But when the animal is killed and the group is suddenly attacked by a rival force, the teens must trek down the mountains and into the jungle, where petty rivalries devolve into life-or-death battles.

"This overpoweringly tense and deeply mad thriller from Colombian filmmaker Alejandro Landes is the best thing I have seen at Berlin this year: something between Apocalypse Now, Lord of the Flies, and Embrace of the Serpent." - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
