Eight stray teenagers, each bearing a code name, form a paramilitary squad on a remote hilltop. They are instinctively drawn towards hedonism and ferocity. A messenger delivers instructions from the Organisation: they are to look after a dairy cow called Shakira and an abducted woman from the USA known as Doctora. But their carefree time comes to an end when death pays them a visit and their position is compromised, forcing them to relocate deeper into the jungle.

“/.../ The idea of making a war film was interesting to me, but also a mirror to that time in your life that I think we’ve all shared and that’s a very peculiar, very conflicted time, which is that borderline moment between childhood and adulthood. Mirroring those two conflicts was something that seemed appealing to me.” (Alejandro Landes)
