The El Cerrejón is a vast chasm extending nearly 700 square kilometres, making it the world’s largest open-cast coal mine.  The pit gets deeper every day, gnawing away at the previously unspoilt landscape, and threatening to destroy the Wayúu community’s way of life. Determined to save his community from forced displacement, Jairo Fuentes, the young leader of the community of Tamaquito, a village in the forests of northern Colombia, sets out to negotiate with the mine’s operators.
