Three kids witnessed a dramatic event in their youth that still haunts them today. Were they only witnesses or also responsible? While everything shimmers with religious excitement around the annual procession of Iztapalapa, a forgotten corner of Mexico City, Andrés, José and Felipe, now 18, wrestle with memories and guilt. “The three characters’ stories blend with the need to create a social portrait: the Iztapalapa’s representation of Christ’s Passion, the water shortage problem and the threat of social violence.” Alejandro Gerber Bicecci
