In 2018, a group of filmmakers embarks on an essay film about a hypothetical stillness syndrome in the Republic of Colombia. For this purpose, they invite Luis Ospina, master of the Colombian documentary, the presidential candidate Gustavo Petro and writer Juan Gabriel Vásquez to give them clues with which to delve into the history, geography and idiosyncrasy of Colombia, a country that, paradoxically, is not motionless at all. For unknown reasons, the project is never finished.
