After accidentally killing a bearded goat with their father's truck, two incompatible teenagers embark on a journey of reconciliation and comedic misadventure along Colombia's breathtaking Caribbean coast. With no money, brother and sister Corn and Rita must find a way to get the damaged truck fixed in time to pick up the tourists that will be staying at their family's hotel. While struggling to conceal the accident, the siblings visit a butcher, rastafari drum makers, a pawn shop and even a witch doctor over the course of an amazing 24-hour odyssey around Port Paradise.

    "There’s a whiff of The Gods Must Be Crazy whimsy wafting through Bad Lucky Goat, an affably quirky debut feature by Bogota, Colombia-based Samir Oliveros."
    Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter

    "The playful narrative careens from a series of exotic locales, from rastafari drum makers to a climactic cock fight, with a blend of naturalistic dialogue and magic realism that’s both charming and unpredictable. The vivid backdrop creates an infectious atmosphere to this lighthearted romp, which stands toe-to-toe with Ozu in its depiction of angsty kids at odds with their surroundings. Yet Oliveros manages to use the rich environment to imbue the proceedings with an otherworldly quality that tips into fantasy and creates the sense that anything could happen. It’s a genuine crowdpleaser...."
