The Venezuelan village of Congo Mirador was once inches above the lake Maracaibo and alive with fishermen and poetry. Up until recently, it has rotted and decayed because of pollution and neglect.
Fighting for the village’s survival are two women – Tamara, a government coordinator and Natalie, a vocal teacher who disapproves of the practice of bribery and intimidation by Tamara. With homes disappearing under the sedimented water, this tale of government corruption covers the spirit of the resilient Venezuelans who are being directly affected by this political and economical crisis.
