The sector of Cazuca's high places, located within the limits of south western Bogota, represents cultural diversity and interchange. People from all zones of the country, assembled by diverse motives and hurt by the same scrouge: lack of opportunity and trauma brought about by war.
The young people of Cazuca are threatened by various social conflicts, however they try to move forward with their own lives and to find a way to express themselves before the world, to exploit their potentials and attitudes. Around them they see their friends and other young people murdered, hence they are frightened to take risks and realize their daily activites. They became prisoners of their own home.
The aim of this film is to show the public the critical situation of the young people of Cazuca, who are afraid to become victims of blind violence.
