Two handsome Colombian brothers raised in Stockholm, Sweden, by their fiercely independent and emotional single mother could not be more different. Pablo is an ambitious, driven and responsible medical student living in Colombia, while Fernando spends his time back in Stockholm roaming the suburbs with his pit bull and partying with friends. The two are reunited when Pablo convinces Fernando to confront his substance abuse and come and live with him in Colombia. Pablo has a plan on how to get Fernando clean in six months. They set out on a journey filled with trials and tribulations that put their relationship to the test. Colombianos is a rich and beautiful piece of dramatic storytelling about the love between two brothers, their struggle for a better life and the turbulent relationship that threatens to break apart their family.
