Set in Guayaquil, Ecuador, Barrio de Paz tells the story of peace worker Nelsa Libertad Curbelo and the city’s gang youth, who have left behind a life of crime to come together and provide services to their struggling community. Loved like a mother, Nelsa has helped the gangs channel their need for unity, structure, and love into the power to participate in society.
