Juan sin tierra

Mentoring projects


Juan, a foreign petroleum consultant, enters Venezuela to secretly document the deteriorating state of the country's vast refining infrastructure. Trapped in a complex web of contradictions in a country in crisis, he abandons his mission out of fear of being betrayed by his local fixer, Gabriel. With nowhere left to turn, he eventually escapes thanks to Andrea, a young woman on her own journey into exile.
