Colombia's down-to-earth superhero

In a Colombia ridden with violence and corruption, Antanas Mockus and his young, idealistic followers are campaigning for change. As mayor of Bogotá, he managed to fight the towering crime rates. Now, as a presidential candidate, he wants to do the same for the rest of the country. LIFE IS SACRED presents Mockus' optimistic and idealistic movement, and gives an impression of Colombia's tragic history. But is it possible to change a rotten political system, armed only with idealism and good intentions?
