A chaotic and violent city contrasting against a natural paradise where the oldest mountains on the planet can be found. Two main characters that find each other at a crucial moment. Two fearless journeys, one that begins as a childlike adventure and ends up on the other side of the country and a one-way journey, free and determined.

The same destiny will inevitably bond a woman with her grandson. Without knowing it they are part of an unbreakable family circle that deeply unites them.

“The Longest Distance takes us from suffocating Caracas to the plenitude that we find on top of one of the oldest geological formations on our planet, the Roraima, south of the Amazon. The speech relies in the magnificence and eloquence of the landscapes that transmit the inner journey of ever character, allowing them to leave behind feelings of guilt and regret in order to learn how to communicate with each other”.
