    • Synopsis
    • In the final days leading up to the Colombian national football finals, Jorge, a young hooligan from the slums of northeastern Colombia, travels 1,000 miles across the country with his friends to see his native Bucaramanga’s football team: Los Leopardos. Proving their commitment as loyal fans, they travel by illegally hopping onto tractor trailers to attend the most important game of the season — one that promises the team a chance to return to Division A of the Colombian professional league after eight years in Division B.
