Feature film / Fiction / in development

2017. Amid the tension of a total closure and the militarization of the border between Colombia and Venezuela, FIDEL, a single father in his forties, works as a smuggler crossing people from one country to another to later sell them to the criminal gang that operates in the area.

One day, after losing a group of illegal immigrants at the hands of the Colombian Army, Fidel is forced to escape with his daughter DAMARIS, a 15-year-old teenager, to Venezuela to avoid getting killed.

There, in the neighboring country, father and daughter will have to put aside their differences to focus on seeking refuge and surviving each day.
