A face as dark as night. Two eyes filled with deception. Forget what you know about the lost boys, because Monos's protagonists are about to rock the boat. In the mountains of Colombia, among the pitfalls of the jungle, seven young guerrillas train and fight with no holds barred. They have a mission: protecting a mysterious American prisoner who they call "the Doctor." Halfway between The Lord of the Flies and Beasts of No Nation, Alejandro Landes signs a journey into the heart of fear, an ancient sentiment shared by mankind all across beyond  geographical barriers. The survival thriller which confirms the director as a new, great talent of the South American cinema.
