Los reyes del mundo is a film about disobedience, friendship and the dignity that exists in resistance. Five children that live on the streets of Medellin embark on a journey to the Colombian Bajo Cauca to claim a piece of land that one of them has inherited. On their odyssey to this land where they can finally be free, they will confront violence and discover beauty. They will celebrate life and friendship, without being able to escape the fate that the world has in store for them.
