INTERRUPTED DESTINIES, Danny Holguin & Juan Carlos Echeverria
USA & Colombia / 2012 / 90 min / BluRay / Spanish w/English sub-titles
The real story of 2 men that after 26 years, find out that they were switched at birth due to an error committed at the hospital where they were born. Both men grow up less that 7 miles from each other. One man, Carlos Mario is raised in an upper class neighborhood in the beautiful city of Cartagena, Colombia. The other man, is raised in an under privileged village by the name of Turbaco. With their destinies switched, ironically Carlos Mario who grew up in a wealthy society lacks affection from his siblings and suffers the abuse of his alcoholic father. On the other hand, Ramsis lacked materialistic luxuries but is raised by a loving and caring family who singles him out as their favorite son. Genetics play a pivotal role in this story. The behavioral traits of the 2 men are completely opposite to the families that raised them for 26 years, but identical to their lost and found biological families. The poetic style of the story comes alive as it evolves around one of the most beautiful and fascinating cities of the Americas.
