Bolivia is a 2001 Argentine and Dutch drama film, based on a Romina Lafranchini story.

Bolivia tells the story of Freddy, a Bolivian with a gentle disposition, who, after Americans burn down the coca fields where he is employed, loses his job. With little work opportunities in Bolivia, he leaves his wife and three daughters and travels to Argentina to search for employment as an undocumented worker, hoping to make money and later return to his family. In the seedy Villa Crespo café, where he lands a job as a grill cook, he meets the characters who affect his life.
