This work is a journey through real and imagined water threads that connect places separated by the Atlantic and thousands of kilometers on land here (Colombia) and there (Switzerland).
In Doña Ola's itinerary the ports are attempts, delusions and interruptions. The radio is the boat and also the map. Between South America and Europe we will ask ourselves about All the waters: the ones we crossed or couldn't cross: who do they belong to? who stains them? how do the days go by in those territories that those waters bathe? Doña Ola, switched on and navigating, carries in her luggage the stories -clear and diffused- of love, terror, of flavors, smells and cries that are kept in the rivers through which she travels.
