This film takes place in a large apartment building in Mexico City. Many of the occupants are struggling financially, leading to them being behind in paying their dues and therefore leading to possible imminent eviction. A few are well off. One family *was* quite wealthy but has recently fallen on hard times, and the teenage children seem utterly incapable of understanding why they should suffer.

The large cast is easier to keep straight than I would have expected, but still there were times of confusion. The camera work was interesting in that the camera sometimes would do a slow roll (not a pan or a tilt), resulting in skewed angles.

When the film did not arrive at Cinequest (the San Jose, CA film festival), the first screening was canceled and the second was shown on video using the screener that the festival programmer had available, but luckily the film did arrive in time for an added screening on the last day of the festival (3/3/2002).
