In the 70s, as the american youth embraces hippie culture, 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 honour blend together, a fratricidal war breaks out and will soon put their family, their lives and their ancestral traditions at stake. Pájaros de verano is the story of an entire country’s descent into Hell, but it’s also a family tragedy in the Greek tradition.
