From the team that made Embrace of the Serpent, this Colombian crime drama completely reinvents the gangster film. Going back to the roots of the cocaine trade in 1968, when indigenous farmers started cultivating marijuana for eager backpackers, the movie spans 12 years, tracing the incredible influx of money - and violence.
