    • Synopsis
    • Tomas, a black adolescent boy forced to flee Colombia’s
      Pacific coast because of the war, is trying to make his way
      in Bogotá, a traditionally racist city. In Bogotá he begins a
      desperate search to find his younger brother Jairo, who has
      been swallowed up by the streets and crack cocaine. Alongside
      his older brother Chaco, who sees illegal migration as the
      only possible means of escaping marginalization, Tomas sets
      off on a voyage of initiation into Bogotá’s Afro community,
      discovering a network of spaces forged by the city’s black
      population. The city in transformation forces Tomas to test
      his mettle and set aside his fear, nostalgia and wounds from
      the past to start over again at 2,600 meters above sea level,
      and far from the sea.
