With many references and tributes to the western and the classic thriller, Ivan D. Gaona tells us of an impossible love story in the country side of an almost contemporary Colombia – the action takes place in 2005 – , where paramilitaries still rule and where violence and money are the only ackowledged terms of social power.
PARIENTE. Willington’s only love, Mariana, is about to get married to René, Willington’s cousin. While Willington is trying to get her back, a demobilization process concerning an illegal armed group is underway in the region, and new killings, besides rumors of a thief at large, will endanger Mariana’s new family.
