On the streets of Medellín, culture and the struggle to claim territory try to coexist as much as possible. Cris, a girl from one of the city's most privileged neighborhoods, often visits a peripheral neighborhood. Together with Simón, have a passion: graffiti. While vacunas (extortion payments) and the control for territory threaten to restrict their expressive freedom, they feel protected from all of this until the painting of a whale begins to get them into serious problems. Catalina Arroyave’s debut feature is a fresh and dynamic film that tells a love story of two young people from different walks of life who are driven by the same passion. While Medellín is a city they love, it seems to be fixated on creating significant barriers to achieving their dreams.
