Synopsis
Documentary about the most lawless province in Honduras, which is one the most dangerous and poorest countries in the world. The film follows a group of musicians who perform for the powerful drug cartels there. Their songs glorify the traffickers who have destroyed their country, and who sometimes threaten the lives of their loved ones. But in a world where the cartels wield the most power, do the musicians have any other choice?
With English subtitles.
