Crab Trap

Crab Trap

Daniel is a young man looking to flee the country. He makes his way to the coast, where he encounters an Afro-Colombian community. While waiting for a boat, he is drawn into the languid rhythm of life and the village intrigues. He also comes into conflict with a fellow outsider, who is in this remote area intent on building a tourist resort. An atmospheric and poetic film, told with an almost documentary-like realism.
