Life in a Mexico City jail.
30 August 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie portraits life in the infamous jail of Lecumberri (now thankfully closed).

"El apando" is the name of the punishment cell where the inmates are sent when they brake the rules.

The inmates are abused, the concept of human rights is non existent.

The inmates are no heroes, they certainly are guilty of different crimes, but the movie makes the point that perhaps their greatest crime is to have been poor.
