Spanish director Sebastián and his executive producer Costa are shooting a motion picture about Christopher Columbus, his first explorations, and the way the Spaniards treated the Indians. To get film made within the limitations of their modest budget, Costa has chosen the Cochabamba area of Bolivia, the cheapest and most Indian of Latin American countries as the location. They hire many supernumeraries, local actors, and extras, and things go more or less smoothly until a conflict erupts over the privatization of the water supply, sold to a multinational. Sebastian cares only for the film, Costa that it is made on time and within budget. The trouble is that one of the local actors is a leading activist in the protest movement. 500 years after Columbus, a David vs. Goliath conflict erupts into the infamous Bolivian Water War, catching the filmmakers firmly in the middle.

Largely predictable (and moralizing) from beginning to end.

This film from Spain by director Iciar Bollain was submitted as a constestant in the best foreign language film category in several film festivals. It was well acted by the cast and well directed. It is an interesting film for people who wants a break from action and sex. Educational and informative.
