    • Synopsis
    • At LA BARRA, an isolated and humid village on the pacific Coast of Colombia, Brain, leader of the native Afro Colombian Community, is at odds with the WHITE MAN, a landowner who wants to build a resort on the beach. DANIEL, a strange man with city looks and manners, arrives in the place and stays some days looking for a boat to leave the country. Only three penniless locals, a Girl and two Teenagers, are willing to help him; however finding a boat will take longer than he expects.
      At LA BARRA, an odd shortage of fish has sent fishermen and their boats far away to sea. The situation at town gets worst when the WHITE MAN installs two loudspeakers on the beach and begins to build a wall that will divide the territory. One day, BRAIN´s patience finally runs out. DANIEL, forced to leave, has to be part in the struggle of this village to survive the looming advent of modernity.
