The Snakes Will Come for You
Original title: Les serpents viendront pour toi
Colombia has one of the highest rates of murders of “social leaders”: unionists, association leaders, simple citizens wanting to assert their rights… The story of Maritza, mother of six, told by one of most brilliant narrators of her generation, is the story of a whole country.
From the Andes to the Caribbean, Snakes Will Come for You is the quest for a truth that keeps slipping away, as in a game of mirrors, in the middle of liars and violent men and a terrible indifference.
