The documentary PATHS OF LOVE portraits the life and work of the Costa Rican artist Guadalupe Urbina, one of the most important singers and poets of Central America, and highly appreciated in Latin America and Europe. Her songs and reflections explore the meaning of love, eroticism, nature, and the sacred, among other subjects of relevant importance, and help to strengthen a communal identity that is so endangered today in the face of greed and economical powers.

But the film is more than a biographical story that follows chronologically the life of the character. It presents the meaning of life and love that this artist has come to understand after so many life experiences, including her proximity to death, and it is also an intimate dialogue between two women, the protagonist and the writer/director Patricia Howell, in which the audiovisual merges with the story, knitting a poem of light, movement, voices and music.

It is a journey to the heart of these two extraordinary women, and it is also an encounter with an awesome Costa Rica, its villages, traditions, people, and the magnificence of nature.

In a country where bands seem to be destined to walk along a rough road bordering a precipice, we discover the meaning that their proposals, no matter how ephemeral, come to have in the lives of people who get infected with them.

It is conformed by a series of adventures and pranks of children, those spontaneous, authentic and restless little human beings, who are not afraid to follow the impulses dictated by their innocent nature and thirst for emotions.

These impulses lead them to live unexpected and fun situations, to weave illusions, face disappointments, and achieve small, great conquests. The craving for a "churchil", the farewell of a toy and a friend at the same time, breaking the rigidity of prayer, going with friends to popular festivals, earning with their own hands the right to listen to the favorite song, to love be part of the parade of bands ... each of these 7 stories is inspired by a popular song and transports us on a tour of the landscapes and culture of each of the provinces of Costa Rica. These güilas are undoubtedly Ticos and in their eyes we recognize the idiosyncrasy and beauty of each of these regions, in an authentic way.
