Conquering the Fort portrays the lives of Moisés (13), Mariano (11), Michele (12) and Anthony (12), who’ve been friends ever since they can remember, and who from early childhood have been telling the story of their hometown Juan Griego to the dozens of people who visit the Galera Fort on Margarita Island, Venezuela. These four kids have been friends since early childhood, and like many other children and young people,  they have told the story – using prose – of their hometown Juan Griego in the isle of Margarita to the dozens of tourists. Their innocence is contrasted with a violent everyday life.
