The struggle to conquer the barrios of war-torn Colombia─beset with crime and infested with drugs─provides the backdrop for this bracing and humanist documentary. Focusing on the neighborhood of La Sierra, the film profiles three young people whose lives are inextricably tied up in the ongoing violence. Riveting interviews reveal how their loved ones and children are affected as leftist guerrillas fight the U.S.-backed Colombian military. 84 min. Soundtrack: Spanish; Subtitles: English; theatrical trailer. In Spanish with English subtitles.
