OCTOBER 10, 20103:26 AM
The thing is, I'll always be
just "El Negro" to you.
- [woman] Luis! Luis! Luis!
- [Luis] Let go of me!
[girl] Luis!
- [man] Mom?

[theme music playing]
BOGOTÁ, OCTOBER 9, 2010 - 8:56 AM
[cell phone buzzing]
- What's up?
- [upbeat music playing]
[man] What's up, you fucking Negro?
Are you coming or what?
Tato, I told you I can't come.
I have to look after my mom.
Negro, she had minor surgery,
like, a month ago.
I know you work for your parents,
but let me tell you,
slavery ended a long time ago.
She had surgery a week ago.
Besides, I'm not invited to that party.
Bro, there are babes here, period.
Come over!
We have to do something
about that little dick of yours.
It's going to fall off
if you don't use it.
- I'm okay with my sex life.
- Yeah, right.
- So tell me, which girls are there?
- Oh, only babes, cuties.
Come over. Don't leave me alone.
No, man. I can't make it.
Talk to you later.
All right, I'll get off your back.
[music fades]
[phone clatters]
[cell phone pings]
[music playing]
Luis Andrés! Come on over, man!
Through Virgin Mary's grace,
may the Lord light your way
and the angel walk with you.
- Amen.
- [knocks on door]
Okay. It's your dad.
- Tell him I said hi.
- [mother] Luigi says hi.
Okay. Kisses. Bye.
- [clears throat]
- How is it feeling?
Better, but it's good you came.
It's starting to hurt.
- Let me see.
- [grunts]
- [groans] I can't look or I'll faint.
- [laughs]
It's looking much better.
Mom, I was thinking, and
I'm going on the trip.
Is that right?
[chuckles] But if you want me to,
I'll stay.
No. I'm glad you decided to go.
Jorge already knows
how to change your bandage.
- Jorge!
- [footsteps approaching]
- And how are you getting there?
- By bus.
What are you thinking?
Wait for your dad. He'll drive you.
- Mom, I'd rather leave now.
- I don't want to travel by night.
All right.
- Luigi, be careful, please.
- I'll take care.
- Call me as soon as you get there.
- Okay.
Jorge, hand me my purse.
- Jorge, get some for yourself!
- [both laugh]
Let's see.
- Thank you very much.
- [driver] You're welcome.
[engine revs]
[faint music playing]
[music continues]
[indistinct chatter]
- Negro!
- Hey, Tato! [Laughs]
This place is fucking awesome!
For a second,
I thought you weren't coming.
I didn't think your parent-bosses
would give you the day off.
- But you made it!
- Get that thing straight!
Get off me!
Right. To take the edge off and catch up.
- Cheers!
- Cheers!
[Tato] Chug it, chug it.
- [muttering]
- [groans]
[yelling] No, man, don't.
My clothes fuck!
[Tato] Negro!
Guys! This is "El Negro," my best friend.
Negro, these are just a bunch
of degenerates. Am I right?
- I'm glad you made it, Negro.
- Hey, isn't that Laura Moreno?
Didn't I tell you? Just cuties!
And get this she's heartbroken.
- Did she break up with Cárdenas?
- I guess so. She's vulnerable.
It's now or never.
[pop music playing]
[speaker feedback buzzes]
- Negro! What are you doing?
- Listen to this one.
- [Tato] No, man. Don't.
- [folk music playing]
Come on, man,
we're not drunk enough yet for that one.
Come on, man. Just this once.
You know I love this one.
Once. That's all.
Shake that booty.
For the man.
For the dead.
And in.
[Luis sings]
[music continues]
Do you like vallenato?
Not really.
This one is different.
This one is mine. Listen.
[music continues]
- And Luis Andrés Colmenares ♪
- Up there in Bogotá ♪
That's me.
Nice to meet you.
- Nice to meet you. Laura Moreno.
- Yes, I know.
We're in Statistics together.
- Statistics 2?
- Yes.
I'm terrible in that class.
I don't get it.
I can help you out anytime.
I've never seen you before, to be honest.
When you shrug at everyone,
- it's hard to see anyone at all.
- [scoffs]
Well, I'm not the one getting mentioned
in famous vallenatos.
Do you think I'm too cocky?
When we know each other better,
I'll tell you.
[Luis continues singing]
I'll squeeze in.
BOGOTÁ, OCTOBER 30, 2010 - 7:03 PM
[lock clicking]
[knocking on door]
Be right there, Mom.
- Luigi, why is your door locked?
- I was getting dressed.
What time are you leaving?
Laura is picking me up in half an hour.
Hey, Mom, don't give me that face.
- What face?
- [sighs]
A face like,
"Why are you hanging around that girl?"
Wha? Did I say anything?
I know you.
Besides, we've only been seeing each other
a few weeks.
There's something that I don't get
about her, but anyway
- maybe it's just your mom being jealous.
- Mmm.
Do you have your costume?
Yes, I found an old mask and that's it.
Maybe you'll like this.
[chuckles] Thanks, Mom!
They're very cool! [Laughs]
And look.
You're the best.
That's so you don't tell me
that I want to scare girls away.
I love you, Mom.
[mother] Bye, son.
- [door closes]
- Hi, Laura.
Do you like my costume?
[exhales] Let's go.
[cell phone ringing]
[cell phone ringing]
[man] Hello, good evening.
Hello, Carlos. How are you?
So nice to hear from you.
Fine, thank you.
[stammers] She went out,
but I'll tell her you called.
Have a nice evening.
Say hi to your family. Goodbye.
Hey, girl. What are you up to, beautiful?
- Pass me the bottle.
- [Tato] You finally grew a pair!
Be quiet, idiot!
So what?
- Are you getting laid tonight or what?
- [sighs] Shut up, asshole!
Did you already tap that and not tell me?
- No way.
- Look at me!
- All we've done is calculus.
- Exactly.
It's time you get yours for being black
and a nerd, don't you think?
- Shut up!
- [both laugh]
"Oh, Negro. Oh! Just like that!
On my derivative"
Shh! Shut up! My mom will hear you!
- "Up my tangent, Negro!"
- My mom will hear you.
She'll hear you.
Fuck! Look what you made me do!
- [sighs]
- Let me clean up this mess.
Look at this. You spilled all the vodka.
- [cell phone buzzing]
- [Tato] Shh
Laura is here.
We're late. Do I look okay?
- Look. For tonight. You got this.
- Ready.
- That's good.
- Okay
- Fuck! You scared the shit
- Don't you know how to knock?
I'm so sorry.
I didn't know you were with your lover.
- [both laugh]
- Shitty humor runs in the family, right?
- Look after Mom, okay?
- I got it.
- Have fun.
- This vodka is awful.
Hey, Tato! Come here. Come!
I hope you lose
your virginity tonight. [Laughs]
[mother] Luigi!
- Mom!
- [footsteps approaching]
How does it look?
- Were you leaving without saying goodbye?
- No, Mom.
- You look so handsome.
- [Luis chuckles]
I'll be home around 3:00,
so don't wait up.
- Mm-hmm.
- [car horn honks]
- Isn't your friend going to say hi?
- No, we're in a hurry.
I won't say anything.
You'll call me old-fashioned,
or that "people in this city
don't do that."
I promise you,
I'll introduce her properly soon.
I love you, Mom.
Have fun.
- Bye, Oneida. Huh?
- No! You'll smear all your makeup on me.
- Tato!
- Yes?
Yes, ma'am?
- Hello.
- Hi.
You look stunning.
- Look after Luigi, okay?
- [scoffs] He's with me. Don't worry.
- Close the door!
- Bye!
Good evening, little mouse. How are you?
- Hello.
- It's Tato, from the trip?
Yeah, I remember.
- Must be the makeup.
- [all laugh]
- How are you?
- I'm on fire.
I want to drink. It's 9 p.m.
and we're still here, so, let's go!
- Let's go.
- [Tato] Let's go!
- Cheers!
- [groans]
- No! What are you thinking?
- Why not?
[engine starts]
[Tato] On our way!
[woman] It's fine with me,
but if I take home a black guy,
my mom will faint!
Yeah, disgusting.
But what about Laura and Cárdenas?
- You really want to know what happened?
- Yes!
Well, ask Laura.
She's waiting for us outside.
[indistinct chatter]
Let's split it.
There's nothing for you.
- Happy Day of the Dead!
- [cheering, laughter]
OCTOBER 30, 2010 - 11:15 PM
I have some bad news. Look at that line!
Shit! Get in line!
Good evening.
[dance music playing]
- I'm not waiting this long.
- I'll be right back.
Laura, are you okay?
- Something wrong?
- Nothing.
Okay, let's go.
- Guys, see you inside.
- What?
- You're not VIPs.
- [woman gasps] Negro!
- I love you!
- Negro!
[laughs] What is this?
Negro! Fuck off!
They'll let anyone
into these clubs these days.
Say hi, at least. Tsk.
Love ya. Thanks, Jess!
- Hello!
- What's up?
Be careful with the devil, okay?
Apu, it's cool. They're with me.
- What's up, you guys!
- All right.
[Laura giggles] Now my turn.

The first.

- Hey! He's drunk.
- Hey!
- What's up?
What a babe you picked up!
[Luis] Yes, that's right.
- Bitch! I hate her!
- Hey.
She's perfect!
She's been drinking for two hours,
doesn't get drunk and she looks gorgeous!
You jealous?
No, I'm mad at you.
At me? What did I do?
Oh, nothing.
You just forgot about your best friend.
- Oh, Jessy.
- No? When was the last time we hung out?
I really have a lot of things
I want to tell you.
Me, too.
A lot.
Okay, next week, then. Couple of beers.
- So you can ditch me? No, thanks!
- Jess, stop it!
You ditch me, I swear I'll kill you!
[scoffs] Admit it, you're jealous.
- Of who? The rat over there? [Laughs]
- Don't call her that.
Okay, man. Chill.
- Jealous?
- A little bit.
I love you!
[dance music continues]

- What will it be?
- Nothing.

Hangin' on the back of my door ♪
Won't give you my heart ♪
No one lives there anymore ♪
And we were lovers ♪
Now we can't be friends ♪
Fascination ends ♪
Here we go again ♪
- Hi!
- [yelps] Hi!
Come on.
- Can we go now?
- Let's stay. The party is good!
I'm very tired.
Come on, we're having fun.
Let's leave.
In a bit. Last drink and we're off.
Your drink is empty.
[giggles] No, there's some left.
Let's go, please.
Let's stay a while.
- Who are you looking at?
- [chuckles]
No one. It's cool. Let's go, please.
Don't be like that, Laura.
See? You're mean.
Same shit as always.
[Jessy] Negro!
Stop it. Stop.
- Get off me!
- [yells] What the fuck?
You want your head broken or what?
- What's wrong?
- What's wrong?
Same shit again, Jessica!
What are you talking about? What shit?
Right. You don't know
because you're the same.
Luis! I was looking for you.
I'm hungry.
- Can we talk for a second?
- About what, Laura?
About what?
[Jessy] Negro!
Luis Andrés, stop the drama!
- Hey, what's your problem?
- Fuck off!
- [woman] Bitch!
- [Jessica] Luis!
Thank you.
[Jessica] Luis. Come on.
- Let go.
- Luis!
What happened to Luis Andrés?
He's missing.
[siren wailing]
5:30 AM
[car door closes]
[indistinct radio chatter]
[Laura] Ms. Oneida?
I'm Laura.
What happened to Luis Andrés?
We don't know.
We were on 85th Street.
He wanted something to eat
and he started running.
He started running?
Yes, Luis Andrés was acting very strange.
I ran after him,
I caught up with him,
and he let go of me,
and he fell in the canal.
Tato, son, what happened?
Why was Luigi so upset? It's not like him.
Maybe someone put something in his drink?
No, One, I was with him all night.
We drank the same thing.
We were tipsy, that's it.
I don't know.
He took off running like crazy.
Good evening. Sorry to interrupt.
I'm Officer Castro.
Are you the missing boy's mom?
Yes. Oneida Colmenares.
Mrs. Colmenares, look, we searched
this entire area with my partner
and we couldn't find anything.
No, but
we have to keep looking.
You can't just disappear.
We searched along the entire canal.
Two firefighters walked the perimeter
with flashlights.
They even went into the tunnel.
They didn't report finding anyone.
If your son had fallen in there,
we would have found him.
The current is too weak.
It can't drag anyone away.
He must be sleeping it off somewhere.
Or even back home by now.
[radio beeps]
Yes, yes, copy. Excuse me.
Yes, we're here
with the missing kid case in the park.
[indistinct radio chatter]
[line ringing]
[cell phone buzzing]
We have to keep on looking.
If we go along the canal, we may find him.
He must be passed out somewhere.
Let's go.
Thank you, kids. Thank you so much.
- I'll call you.
- Yes. If you find anything, let me
[Tato] Come on, let's go!
Let's split up.
[indistinct radio chatter]
Let's call Dad.
[line ringing]
[phone ringing]
OCTOBER 31 - 5:58 AM
Hello, darling, good morning.
What do you mean?
[siren wailing in distance]
OCTOBER 31 - 6:17 AM
[water trickling]
Wait, wait,
we've been through here already.
- No, Mom, we haven't.
- We have!
Stop! Stop!
- [car horn honking]
- That's Luigi!
- [both panting]
- Luis?
- [Oneida] Luigi!
- Luigi!
- Luigi!
- [Oneida] Luigi!
- [Oneida sobbing]
- [Jorge] Luis.
[tires screech]
[keyboard clicking]
[cell phone buzzing]
[sighs] What's wrong?
[cell phone buzzes]
A young man who arrived at 6:00
at Kennedy Hospital
has no ID and is badly stabbed.
Let's go!
4:15 PM
[monitor beeping]
Ma'am, you can't be here.
Please, I'm looking for my son.
Luis Andrés Colmenares, 20 years old.
He's missing.
They said a stabbed man
came in today. It could be him.
Yes, this morning a young man arrived.
He's in bad shape.
But, please,
wait outside until he's stable.
Please, miss, just let me see if it's him.
Is it him?
What happened?
It wasn't him.
Here, Mom.
We have to go back to the park.
We have to check that tunnel.
[water trickling]
OCTOBER 31 - 6:47 PM
[Oneida] Excuse me, sir. If you see this
young man, will you call this cell phone?
- Yes, I will.
- Thank you.
Excuse me. If you see this young man,
will you call this cell phone?
I'm asking you to check the tunnel.
- I can't do it for you!
- We already did all we could.
You can't just vanish!
[Castro] Mrs. Colmenares!
With all due respect, I remind you,
we already searched the canal twice.
I personally conducted a search.
I can confirm your son
is not in the perimeter.
I'm not telling you to search the canal.
I want you to call the firefighters
so they'll go down to the tunnel again.
Yes, but under the circumstances,
that is impossible for me.
That's a decision
my superiors have to make.
Officer! Do you have children?
- No, ma'am. I don't have any.
- Then I'm wasting my time with you.
- Mom, what are you doing?
- [Castro] Mrs. Colmenares!
- What I should have done from the start.
- [Castro] Mrs. Colmenares, be careful!
- Mom, what are you doing?
- Sir, please control your mother!
I'm going down. I have to find Luigi!
- What?
- I'll go down!
- I have to go. I need to find him.
- I'll go, Mom!
- Calm down!
- Let go of me!
- I have to find him!
- I know, I'll go down!
- Let go!
- Breathe, Mom, breathe!
Okay, Mom. Okay, okay.
Breathe, breathe!
- Dispatch, requesting rescue assistance.
- Just breathe.
Virrey Park, quadrant 29.
Did you hear that?
They're going to help us, okay?
Calm down, ma'am. Rescue backup is coming.
[indistinct radio chatter]
[siren wailing]
Affirmative. Positive finding.
[gasps, sobs]
[Oneida wailing]
Based on a true story.
The events and characters involved
in the death of Luis Andrés Colmenares
have been fictionalized to portray
one of the most controversial cases
in the history of Colombia.
The scenes are not
a true representation of reality.
Some names have been modified
to depict a fictional version
of a very well-known story,
without harming the good name
and privacy of those people
who are not known to the public.
Some dialogue and characters
have a narrative purpose.
The procedural truth
about the Colmenares case
lies in its files and judicial decisions.
