Chicuarotes

Cagalera and Moloteco are two teenagers from San Gregorio Atlapulco who are desperately trying to free themselves from the oppressive circumstances they live in. When they find out about a chance to buy a spot in the electricians’ guild –which has the potential of transforming their lives–, they go deep into Mexico City’s dark criminal world in an effort to buy their freedom.
