Yineth was recruited at age 12 by the Colombian FARC guerrilla. She was one of thousands of minors recruited by force for a war she managed to escape from. Today, she has rebuilt her life in civil society and has reinvented herself with every step she has taken, although she has not been able to escape her past completely. Yineth is the woman of seven names. Each one of them shows a different way of being, a different way of relating to the world, a reinvention. Guerrilla member, cabaret dancer, middle class mother, lecturer for peace... All faces of the current Yineth who is in search of a stable future, are not only in the same body but also escape from the same past that keeps finding them over and over again - the challenge of reintegration with which Colombian society is confronted.

The weight of wearing a fatigue uniform in her living room, the vanity of a city woman and a combination of opposites portray the most human and thus most dangerous sides of this character: the contradiction of a woman who escapes her past and at the same time is addicted to it.
