Birds of Passage
The film explores the rise of a Wayuu man and his family as they enter the drug trade, prosper, and slowly lose their traditions and former way of life.
In the 70s, as American youth embrace hippie culture, a marijuana bonanza hits Colombia, quickly turning farmers into seasoned businessmen. In the Guajira desert, a Wayuu indigenous family takes a leading role in this new venture, and discovers the perks of wealth and power. But when greed, passion, and honor blend together, a fratricidal war breaks out that will soon put their family, their lives and their ancestral traditions at stake.
