Synopsis

The mountains of Colombia have been a silent witness through 50 years of war. In the rebel camps deep in the forest, Teo writes the harsh memories of his fellow guerrilleros. Meanwhile Boris, a cameraman for the FARC, films behind the scenes of the peace negotiations between FARC leaders and the Colombian government in Cuba. As they deal with the reality of inserting themselves back into civilian life, they join together in the search for a cache hidden in the mountain.

During the four years that the dialogues lasted, Guevara's camera was one of the few authorized in spaces where the oldest guerrilla in Latin America (...) negotiated the end of a conflict that had left more than 200 thousand dead (...) in the oldest conflict in the western hemisphere.
