Juan and Carlos attend the same school in southern Bogotá, Colombia. One is bullying, the other is being bullied until both participate in the social theatre project Blows to the Soul. The workshop program helps them escape their roles as perpetrator and victim and generates mutual respect by learning about themselves and others.

Juan und Carlos gehen auf die gleiche Schule im Süden Bogotás, Kolumbien. Der eine mobbt, der andere wird gemobbt, bis beide an dem sozialen Theaterworkshop Blows to the Soul teilnehmen. Das Workshop-Programm hilft ihnen, aus ihren Rollen als Täter und Opfer auszubrechen und gegenseitigen Respekt zu entwickeln, indem sie sich selbst und andere besser kennenlernen.
