I regularly keep thinking about whether we are carrying on with some unacceptable life in some unacceptable country.Talia is being held at a remedial office for juvenile young ladies in the forested heaps of Colombia subsequent to submitting an indiscreet demonstration of viciousness that might have been justified. She direly needs to get out and get back home to Bogotá, where her dad and a boarding pass to the United States are hanging tight for her. In the event that she fails to catch her plane, she may likewise botch her opportunity to at long last be brought together with her family in the north. How this family came to involve two unique nations, two distinct universes, comes into center like bits of a kaleidoscope. We see Talia's folks, Mauro and Elena, begin to look all starry eyed at in a market slow down as teens against a setting of common conflict and social turmoil.

Rich with Bogotá metropolitan life, saturated with Andean legend, and tense with the day by day truth of the undocumented in America, Infinite Country is the tale of two nations and one blended status family—for whom each win is sewed with lament, and each fantasy sought after bears the heaviness of a fantasy conceded.
