Miguel Courtois Paternina / Spain, France, Colombia / 108 min / 2012 / Spanish with English subtitles

A controversial film in Colombia due to the real event on which it is based (the kidnapping of Clara Rojas and Ingrid Betancourt). Crisanto is a poor cocaine farmer who lives with his family in the Guaviare jungle. A group of FARC guerrilla fighters give Cristano a moribund baby and tell him to take care of the baby, but two years later, the guerrilla asks urgently for the child as he is at the center of an exchange of hostages that is bringing two countries to the brink of war.
