Laura Mora's "The Kings of the World" has no shortage of beautiful shots. On this Colombian road trip, we follow five teenagers who want to start a new life, away from the violence and poverty they grew up with. As the film leaves the bustling streets of Medellin and enters the misty landscapes of the Andes, Mora captures a vision of this land in transition that is as stunning as it is dazzling.
Rá, Culebro, Sere, Winny and Nano live in the streets of Medellín. The five children have lost contact with their families. They form a kind of brotherly clan, in which they have to find their way in a parallel world without laws. In doing so, they uphold ideals such as friendship and dignity, but they also show disobedience and resistance. On a dangerous and extraordinary journey, the group of young people ventures into the depths of the Colombian interior. There they hope to find a piece of land that Rá inherited from his deceased grandmother.
