Summary
A Colombian philosophy student is arrested in Bangkok, accused of drug trafficking. He risks the death penalty and longs for his distant sister Juana. During their childhood, Juana promised to do everything to protect him from the drug- and violence-infested streets of Bogotá. But when things spun out of control she was forced to flee, leaving her brother behind. Their story reaches the ears of the Colombian consul general in New Delhi, who takes it upon himself to reunite the two siblings--a feat that may be beyond his power.
