International observers go to Colombia to investigate into State crimes.
The director accompanies them. With the camera on her shoulder, she collects the words of those who testify the death of their close relatives. Their son, their sister, their father were killed by the army which introduces the victims like guerrillas died at the combat. “They were not guerrillas, there was no combat”.
This film is inhabited by the dignity of these peasants, the fear of the reprisals does not prevent them from denouncing these crimes. While clinging to their words, this documentary pays homage to their courage.
