— In 1976, when I was eight years old, my father made a sort of storyboard, in the manner of the fotonovela magazines of Mexico during those years. The story is about a child with learning problems at school, probably related to the problems derived from poverty, in a country already breaking apart since then. The main actor was myself, a troubled mind as well since then.
