THE LONGEST DISTANCE
A chaotic and violent city that contrasts with a natural paradise where the oldest mountains on the planet are found. Two main characters who meet at a crucial moment. Two intrepid journeys, one that begins as a children’s adventure and ends on the other side of the country and a one-way trip, free and determined. The same fate will inevitably unite 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”.
