Sorry, this film is no longer available.

Solangel, Ruben and Teodoro walk around through the chaos of the densely populated city of Bogotá. They are looking for food, money and a little justice. They feel the painful experiences of the past; all of them were violently forced to leave their lands. They take hold of the new lives forced upon them and fight their conflicts with dignity, endurance and some humor. “The Land Left Behind” tells of the fate that befalls three people who have ended up in the Moloch that is the Colombian city of Bogotá. On a daily basis, Solangel, Ruben and Teodoro walk about through the chaos of dirt, noise and crowds. There’s always a challenge: they have to find money, food and work for themselves and their families to survive. A few months back they had a small piece of land, work and family and friends around them. As a result of brutal violence and threats from the FARC guerillas, paramilitary units and the military, they were forced to leave their home.
