Rodrigo and his friends are bored teenagers living in Medellin. Rodrigo wants to start a punk band. The youths mainly loaf around the hillside shanty towns and, for kicks, steal a bike or car, or shoot someone.

Inspired by Umberto D but with Colombian punkers. The first Colombian film to be submitted into the Cannes Film Festival and receive international acclaim. Both a fascinating look at punk rock as well as survival on the streets of Medellin. Most cast members were from the street and several of them died during the production of the film. One that hits close to my heart.
