SYNOPSIS: The thick jungle of Colombia's Pacific, by the Anchicayá river is the scenario of the documentary Travesía. In Travesía, Robinson and his family embark in a journey to extract wood from the deep jungle. The nature puts obstacles and difficulties in their way to achieve their goal. They also have to dodge the legal issues of wood exploitation in the region and finally they have to put their navigating skills learned since childhood, to transport the logs down the Anchicayá river, all the way to Buenaventura. Travesía is a story of survival of a family in rural Colombia.
