In late 2016, a peace treaty was signed between the Colombian government and the former guerrilla movement FARC*. Since then, some 7.000 remaining members have settled in transition camps throughout the country to start the reintegration into civilian life. After 53 years of armed conflict, this is a historic step and essential to the complex process of building a long lasting peace in Colombia. This series provides insights into the former rebel’s new everyday lives and portrays the reintegration process on a human level. However, with the recent election of a new President, an outspoken opponent of the peace treaty, the continuation of the process is uncertain and puts the camp inhabitants in limbo, facing a mixture of both hope and concern about their future existence.
