what can you do in a corrupted system?
20 January 2000 | by ledifkSee all my reviews

The mirror of the actual mexican society full of corruption in the system is the principal plot of this film that we can see with the eyes of a citizen that lives in the city between the disgusting system that governs with corrupted policemen corrupted politics even corrupted priests that the only thing that they wants it's the taste of the power and the money. A sad, but truth story of a country that is crying for justice, but the only thing it have are lies.
