Pin It

María, a 13-year-old guerrilla soldier, is charged with bringing her commander’s newborn baby to safety in a neighboring town. However, Maria also has a secret and must figure out what she’ll do with the baby she’s expecting. Through Maria’s eyes, the devastating effects of Colombia’s armed conflict are laid bare. Colombia’s official entry for the 89th Academy Awards.

 

Maria, a 13-year-old guerrilla soldier, is given a mission to complete along with 3 other soldier-kids: bring the commander’s newborn baby to safety in a neighboring town. But nobody knows the secret she is hiding: Maria is pregnant and having a child is forbidden in the guerrilla. During the mission her secret is revealed and she runs away to avoid being forced to abort. Through Maria’s eyes we experience the devastating results of Colombia’s armed conflict: towns ravaged by massacres, peasants trapped in the cross-fire, parents who have lost their children, and kids trying to grow up normally amid the carnage.
