Hovering over the river that segregates Cali, Colombia, into haves and have-nots, a haunting presence identifies a perilous willingness among the populace to do anything that is asked of it. A blonde teenage girl, knowing she must change her life, leaves her well-appointed house and flagrantly gives herself over to this tolerant city, saying "yes" to everything provocative it offers her. Only the music tethers her body and spirit together, even as she reaches for redemption through a bold, delicious, and resplendent self-destruction.

Carlos Moreno returns to the Sundance Film Festival (Dog Eat Dog, 2008, and All Your Dead Ones, 2011) with this wild, beautiful, kaleidoscopic celebration of youth, hedonism, and the transforming power of music. Inspired by the 1977 best-selling cult novel by Andres Caicedo, and drenched in a Fania Records soundtrack, Liveforever defies all narrative convention to deliver a lyrical, heady experience driven by mesmerizing bolts of energy, drugs, sexuality, irreverence, and salsa.
