About the Film

Crocodile-men, a mystical river, children who like fishing and a war that is coming to an end, all share the same piece of Colombian land: the village of Bojaya. The villagers hold a strange belief and celebrate death with the “Novenario” ritual. All of that can be the beginning of a very long story in which spirits and people meet to discover what life has to offer after the war.
