"Hope for Colombia" follows the 10-day Grace Pilgrimage through and around the Colombian capital Bogota. It is a portrait of two projects, a peace research center in Portugal and a Colombian peace community that declared itself neutral in an area most affected by the armed conflict. It follows the two projects and internationals from Israel, Palestine, Germany, and other countries accompanying the pilgrimage. It shows the coming together of the two communities, their encounters with other peace activists and groups in the city of Bogota, shanty towns, and remote areas. It aims to, with government officials, create a network of protection for the peace community in Colombia and to show a possible path toward a global culture of peace in a seemingly hopeless situation.
