La Toma

The people of La Toma, Colombia are fighting for their survival. Ironically it is the gold, which gave them their autonomy for hundreds of years that today threatens to destroy their way of life.

At the center of this struggle are two extraordinary people, Lisifrey and Francia. They have put their lives on the line defending their homeland from the onslaught of the gold rush.

La Toma shines a light on two unsung heroes inspiring us with their unrelenting strength and bravery.
