The much celebrated peace agreement runs Colombia into chaos. Ernesto is one of many leftist FARC guerrillas that want to fight for a better society, but this time by political means. A passionate right-wing politician and a descendant of Spanish conquistador both want to rescue the country from the FARC terrorists. The farmers cultivating coca could escape poverty, but only if the agreement is respected.
While Colombia faces a crucial opportunity for change, these characters balance at the edge of their morals. Many think the war is senseless, but are willing to take justice into their own hands if necessary – even at the cost of peace. What happens to a very fragile peace in an unequal country, if doing the ‘wrong’ thing may the only means of struggle?
Colombia in my Arms is available all of the festival week.
