A kidnapping in Colombia triggers doubt, violence and reconciliation in its wake...
By: Issia Jordan
Dario Caetano is a top Bogotá lawyer fighting for social justice. He puts a premium on integrity, and that can sometimes mean making compromises to protect a worthy cause or loved ones. Then his dairy-farmer son Rafa is kidnapped, and Dario discovers his carefully compartmentalized life is a house of cards. When his ties to a fledgling terrorist group come to light, he becomes a prime suspect, and suddenly all he holds dear is at risk.
As events escalate, the hostage takers and those whose life they have disrupted are forced to redefine how they give meaning to their life, and the lengths they’ re willing to go to for it. Idealism, shame, obsession and self-doubt weave an intricate plot from the highlands of Bogotá to the Caribbean coast and Amazon jungle. Who will pay a heavy price, and who will find enlightenment?
