SYNOPSIS

My mom died days after the beginning of the peace talks with the FARC guerrilla group. Before she. Died, she told me that she had forgiven and that she didn’t want anyone else to live her experience. She had been kidnapped for almost two years in a corner of the jungle. My brother and I has never talked about ir before. Qe had even forgotten the diary that she had been allowed to write and that she brought with her, in which she recorded the worst 603 days of her life. Reading the diary propels us into a precipice. We locate places, decipher names and begin a journey through jungle and mountains following the trail of her pain but also looking for the guerrillas who guarded her and that occupied a large part of that diary, where we discovered they developed a close relationship with her, almost a mother/son kind of ir. Maybe those guerrillas are now demobilized, so we set out to find them. To follow mom’s wake is to follow.
