Director Statement

After learning that my mom had cancer, I made bad decisions to get the money quickly.

The short film takes as my axis my sentimental experience, but in the same way I wanted to recount the Mexican violence caused by drug trafficking as well as the lack of opportu - nities in health.

I used to think that to stop making things easy I could take the easy decisions but I learned that this only caused me to harm myself and who I was trying to protect.
