We’ll never be silent again
Every night after work, RAS paints graffiti on different walls of his neighborhood in the east of Cali. During the day he is a construction worker and the son of MARIA, a sweet mulatto who emigrated to the city from the Pacific jungle. RAS has not slept again and is beginning to daydream. MARIA suffers because she thinks someone has bewitched her and the boy will end up in madness. One day RAS lost his job for stealing several jars of paint with which he was making a large mural in the lot next to his house. Without money to help his mother, he crosses the city in search of CALVIN, another young graffiti artist and fine arts student who’s going through some difficult times after his parents‘ divorce and his grandmother’s cancer.
The boys will wander aimlessly through the city, like if they want to get lost and not being found. Along the way, like two fungi, they will pollute their environment of immense freedom.
