Shorts Competition

Pilar, a young mother in Bogotá, receives an internship opportunity in the USA and the news comes as a big surprise to her husband, Alejandro, who is tied down to his responsibilities in Bogotá.

Set in 1992, as Colombia faces an era of drug violence, car bombs, and daily power outages, Pilar and Alejandro must deal with their conflicting desires and the danger and darkness around them. With just three days to respond to the offer, Pilar must decide between being a mother and a wife in Bogotá or leaving everything behind to revive her fading professional dreams.
