520    In the last forty years, Mexico City, one of the largest 
       and most densely inhabited places in the world, has seen a
       population explosion from one million to nearly twenty 
       million. The landless peasants who arrive in Mexico City 
       find survival no easier than the rural poverty they sought
       to escape. Half of Mexico City's people are, or have been,
       illegal squatters. By introducing us to several families 
       who struggle to survive here, the film puts a human face 
       on Mexico's urban poor. The Martinez family is one of 
       thirty seven families who live in the shell of a house 
       reduced to rubble by an earthquake. Ramon Martinez dreams 
       of saving enough money from his shoe shine work to marry 
       the mother of his four children in a proper ceremony. 
       Guadalupe is a single mother living in one of the tin and 
       cardboard shacks that lines the road to the airport. She 
       shares a tap of untreated water with her neighbors. Jorge 
       is one of twenty thousand people who live on the fringe of
       Mexico City's garbage dump. His wife was buried alive by 
       an avalanche caused by the illegal dumping of trash. One 
       organizer, Clara Brugada, is part of a barrio which 
       decided to fight back. With their own hands the people 
       replaced the mud huts with sturdy housing and stood up to 
       the police who have tried to evict them. It now stands as 
       a beacon of hope for the millions who live on the edge.
