SYNOPSIS It is based on the novel under the same name from writer Gustavo Alvarez Gardeazábal. It is the first fiction film document that focuses one of the defining profiles from a social and political history of Colombia, the violence. This film marks how since the XIX century the two traditional political parties, the Liberal and Conservative, fought a series of uninterrupted civil wars that lasted about a hundred years. The last one of them, known as “La Violencia”, is the framework in which the argument occurs. This war began after the popular leader Jorge Eliecer Gaitan is assassinated on April 9, 1948. That day a dark age began and lasted nearly a decade and in which murderers for pay played an important role, the so-called “pajaros” such as Leon Maria Lozano, the most notorious of all, “El Condor”
