Synopsis

Tomas, an Afro-Colombian teenager who fled the country´s Pacific coast pushed out by the war, faces the difficulties of growing up in Bogotà, a city of exclusion and racism. When Jairo, his younger brother, disappears, Tomas plunges in the streets of the city searching for Jairo. This initiatory journey compels him to face his past and to leave aside the influence of his brothers in order to find his own identity. Tomas reveals a unique perspective of a vibrant and unstable city that, like Tomas, stands on the threshold between what once was and what might be.
