The film is a portrait of the Colombian musician and artist León Octavio Osorno who demonstrates that resistance can be a matter of humor and joy.
With his band Campo y Sabor (Country and Flavor) he focuses on the safety of food and deals with subjects like the fair trade agreement TLC and the privatization of public water plants.
His natural reserve Villamaga is „a breath of hope and an act of resistance to the neoliberal system.“
The film follows León Octavio throughout various projects, shows his inspiring spirit and touches on issues that affect not only Colombia but our entire globalized world.
