A journey through one of the most violent chapters in contemporary Venezuelan history. On April 1, 2017, Venezuela woke up with no members of parliament and a government with ever-increasing power. An institutional coup deplored on one side by the international community, while for others it was the best outcome.

We plunge right into the epicenter of the current crisis in Venezuela though the voices of its true protagonists. "The Broken Country" is five intertwined stories showing how the citizens are making their way through the remains of a run-down government.
