EMMANUEL is a riches to rags story, set in a remote mountainous region of Colombia:  
It's 2010.  The father of two wealthy children suddenly goes missing, forcing the children to live with their impoverished relatives in a tiny rural village.  
 
The children build a growing relationship with both the townsfolk and their shy but precocious cousin Emmanuel:  All conspire to bring the children's father home.
