The story begins with a wide shot of Colombian houses on top of each other, on top of a hill. The shot continues down the hill. The houses that surround us are composed of delirious architecture. A neighbourhood filled with history of social and political upheavals. It is a short journey. It is a poetic journey, a tribute to the creative strength of youth and self-representation.
