This film is about the relationship between an experienced trafficker (Jacobo) and a novice (Delio), bonding on a long trafficking mission on a
dilapidated skiff, transporting millions of dollars of “merchandise” in tow, up a Columbian river. Coming face to face with the perils and dangers
associated within that industry, the two get to know one another very well. In one scene, for example, the pair are sitting around a campfire
discussing who is “the rey” or the king of soccer, Pele or Maradona? Jacobo and Delio continue on their journey, when the mission is almost completed,
something goes awry, and they have to sort things out quickly, or their lives will be at stake.
