In Colombia there are policemen and soldiers who have been held captive for over 12 years. They only find out about news that the guerrillas want them to hear. In an effort to speak directly to their men, a song was created, which contained a hidden message to boost morale in the chorus, written in Morse code. For the first time in over a decade, the voice of the Military Forces of Colombia broke guerrilla enemy lines with the power of information, and reached its men to give them strength and hope.
