La Sirga

Abandoned and alone, a young girl wanders through the misty highlands of the Andes. War memories invade her mind like threatening thunder. Uprooted by the armed conflict, she seeks refuge with her only remaining family member, a gruff and unwelcoming uncle. He runs La Sirga, a dilapidated guesthouse on the shores of the immense La Cocha lake, a place of mystery and legend, sacred to the ancient indigenous Quillacinga. There, on a swampy and murky beach, Alicia will try to find shelter from the menace of her fears.

Building Royale

Edificio Royal

Conscience, collaboration and respect. These are the three words meant to define life in the Building Royale, but it has certainly seen better days. Its proprietor, Zoila, a kind of tropical Miss Havisham and ex-Queen of the Barranquilla Carnival, attends to the lives of her tenants based on the advice of her Tarot cards, while the cockroaches run under the rug. The tenants themselves go about their daily lives convinced that they live in a most respectable building.
