A Colombian philosophy student is arrested in Bangkok for drug trafficking. He risks the death penalty, but there’s nothing he wants more than to be reunited with his sister Juana. As a boy, Manuel was a dreamer…. Juana promised to protect him from the violence-infested streets of Bogotá, and took extreme measures to do so. When things spun out of control she was forced to flee, leaving him behind.  Their story reaches the ears of the Colombian counsel general in New Delhi, who takes it upon himself to reunite the two siblings. A feat that may be beyond his power.
