But soon, the archaic injuries he has to deal with as an intern at the Cali hospital will lure him towards Siloé, a picturesque neighbourhood of teenage hired assassins.
Marc’s urge to understand the reality of a world so contrary to his own will make him disobey fear, waging a hazardous juggle with all kinds of debauchery, real-life assassins and his new status of being the neighbourhood’s “Dr. Alemán”.
Only when the safe bubble of his European romanticism bursts on the merciless rules of the real Siloé, Marc starts to realize that what he took as an adventure has cost the life of all the people here he has learned to love.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator align=”align_left” el_width=”90″ css=”.vc_custom_1487774249805{padding-top: 2% !important;padding-bottom: 2% !important;}”][vc_gallery type=”image_grid” images=”410,411,412,415,413,418″][/vc_column][vc_column css_animation=”none” width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
