In El Paraíso, a mother and son work in the drugs trade – a marginalised life on the outskirts of Rome, where undocumented Colombian migrants eke out an existence.

A forty-year-old man is still sheltering under his mother’s wing: she’s an extremely forceful, charming woman. Both are involved in the drugs trade, which is in the hands of Colombian cartels that have carved out a territory for themselves in Rome.
