    • Synopsis
    • Ras is a young man living in Cali. His mother Maria is a sweet woman who came to live in Cali from the tropical Pacific coast. During the day Ras works as a construction worker, earing money that he needs to support his mother. At night he sprays graffiti on the walls of his neighbourhood. He cannot sleep and starts daydreaming. His mother is increasingly worried, thinking he might be possessed or end up insane. One day, Ras is fired for stealing several cans of paints that he need to spray a big mural on his house. With no money he wanders through the city, looking for Calvin, another graffiti artist who studies art. He too is in a difficult situation because his family is disintegrating and his grandmother is ill with cancer. The two young man meander through the town and like two mushrooms they contaminate their environment with an immense sense of liberty.
