Synopsis : 

La primera noche is about a peasant couple who have been ousted from their remote land, where they lived since their childhood, and brutally launched onto the streets of an enormous, strange and ruthless city. They experience suffering, disillusionment, disappointment in love grow inside them. They are incapable of bearing each other's pain. Althought the backdrop of this film is the Columbian conflict, the real action takes place in the characters' hearts.
