Two sisters, Ati and Mindhiva, are part of the Arhuaca tribe, a Colombian indigenous culture. Their dream is to continue with their university studies, but they have no money and it is impossible for them to enter in to the National University.

MUBI's take

Conceived to help sisters Ati and Mindhiwa get into college, this inspiring documentary is imbued with the spirit of resilience. As well as succeeding in its original goal, Claudia Fischer’s beautiful film offers a unique window into the lives of the Arhuaco, an Indigenous people of Colombia.
