Ana Martín was originally scheduled to play the role of Meche, but declined at the last minute because she felt really uncomfortable with the violent nature and content of the script. The role went to María Rojo, who was a fan of José Revueltas' novel. See more »

Mexican prsion movie ahead of its time
30 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

this movie show a raw look at the brutal conditions which to this day exist in the Mexican prison system. the dialogue does not ommit any profanity or references to homosexuality,drug abuse, and corruption; unthinkable in a mexican film of the seventies.anyone interested in knowing about life in the mexican penal system should watch this film.
