In reality, coca is just a plant.But the cocaine made from coca leaves is the reason for an never-ending war with countless victims.The film goes to where the conflict is at its bloodiest -- Columbia.It shows farmers, paramilitaries, guerillas and dealers and describes impressively how a country was and still is dominated by a drugs war, while elsewhere the powder serves as a party enhancer.It also shows the Yanacuna Indians in San Agustin in whose natural religion coca plays an essential part.A ban on growing the plant would mean the loss of their spirituality.
