Great propaganda against Mexico's ruling party.
20 August 2005 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

What can be more captivating than a rural Teacher who tries to act according to her principles, rather than giving up to the Politicals very particular interests??? Mexico had for many years, been exploited by a gang of people that had made Mexico, their own territory. Local "caciques" (controllers of the regions)were the ones that really controlled the Country. It has been said since ever, that ignorance is the best ally that any one can have. In those times, teachers, and anyone else for that matter had to accept what the local leaders had to say about education. This movie shows what an independent person can do to change the status of the establishment. Good movie to watch.
