SYNOPSIS

To protect their neighborhood from burglars and criminals, a group of teenagers arm themselves and form a gang: Los poquiticos. From the top of the hill where they live, they are always organizing fights with neighboring gangs. Over time, what began as a game of sorts to let off steam results in very real pain and death. Today, with the benefit of hindsight, the poquiticos and their mothers attribute this dynamic of violence to the deep divisions and inequality that characterize cities like Cartagena, and analyze why they decided to trade in their guns for rap.
