Tierra Caliente

Tierra Caliente

In Colombia, where there are no seasons, it is common for people from cold cities to travel towarmer parts of the country, the Tierra Caliente (Hot Lands), in search of a summer sojourn. Culturally, Tierra Caliente has become a place where anything can happen… where anyone can let go and be free. As the mercury rises, a secret turns a trip to Tierra Caliente into a weekend that Veronica, Lucia and their boyfriends will never forget.
