Includes genital mutilation. Very graphic content.

There are two editions of this movie; an older without subtitles and this current with subtitles.

The realism of a documentary. You're not sure if what you are seeing is a staged movie or hidden camera reality. Story based around a small working family's life in poverty Guanajuato Mexico as they are caught between drug cartels and various government enforcement agencies (some of which act in ways not too different from the cartels).
Some people are beaten; some people are killed; a young girl is raped (not reenacted).
On the negative side a couple of scenes seemed pointlessly out of place and didn't contribute to the story.
