IMAGINATION IS THE ONLY ESCAPE
Alix tells the story of CONEJO, a skilled soldier at the top of his ranks, and a 12-year-old girl, ALIX, who he recruits to be a child soldier in the Colombian jungle. Alix sees everything through magical realism and experiences her captor as her savior. It’s a redemptive coming-of-age tale about the discovery of inner strength and family.
Alix is an imaginative little girl who lives on a ranch in a remote part of Colombia with her submissive mother and abusive stepfather. On the night of her 12th birthday, she decides to run away with Conejo, a guerrilla fighter whose job is to recruit virgin girls for his boss, Ramon. Conejo promises Alix she will be part of a real family so she embarks on what she sees as a ‘magical’ journey through the jungle. As they walk to the guerrilla camp, a unique father-daughter relationship develops. Surprised by his feelings, Conejo soon finds himself torn between this newly formed bond and his secret mission to save the woman he loves who is pregnant and waiting for him back at the camp. Alix is his ticket to freedom but when his boss Ramon actually begins to abuse her, Conejo is forced to pay the ultimate price.
