The Lucky Ones

Colombia, 2003: a teenager hides alone in her family's mansion until she hears a knock at the door. Her teacher is kidnapped by guerrillas and teaches Shakespeare in the jungle to a class of sticks, leaves, and stones. New York, 2008: another classmate, now a young woman, is unable to forget the past without the help of the little bags of powder she carries with her. As years overlap and lives intersect in often unexpected ways, they provide a lens on the intensity of life in Colombia during the violent years of guerrilla insurgencies and corruption.
