    • Synopsis
    • The main topic of the movie is a party –the Carnival of Oruro- which represents the
      maximum expression of happiness, diversity and collective reconciliation in Bolivia.
      Enemies and friends dance together a ring dance called corro de vida y
      muerte or dance of the life and death. As the party finishes, a new massacre could
      begin. But just as the indigenous president Evo Morales stated, they celebrate life,
      death and rebirth with hope. With the same hope, Latin America watches that
      dramatic dance, on the edge of a tragedy, with its soul hanging by a thread and with
      the eyes fixed on the changes yet to come.
