We find, in this collection of fourteen short stories, all the ferocity that has earned Guillermo Arriaga to be one of the favorite screenwriters of Alejandro González Inárritu. And it is the street which, in each of them, crystallizes the anxieties, frustrations and vices of these characters who are on edge. Whether they are adults, children, doctors or police officers, the time of innocence seems a lost paradise, long traded for an inextinguishable hell.
How not to look away from the barbarity of little Roberto and Rodrigo, the violence of the Viking, the visceral anguish of Rómulo or the specter of Katty's? In the southern district of Mexico, heavy, corrupt and corrupt, the impulses are there more death than life.
