SYNOPSIS 

In Nine Shots, Jorge confronts the images he and his mother recorded throughout their lives, creating a first-person account about his trials, tribulations, and the dreams he realized through bloodshed.

This testimony also shines a light on the youths going to combat in Colombia's internal armed conflict -whichever side they may fight for-and the mothers who give birth to sons thrust into a war.
