A single woman tells us – she tells us about Juarez, a town on the border between Mexico and the United States, a town of maquiladoras, factories for women who are exploited at will. They come from all over the country to work there, and the cardboard shacks have multiplied to the edge of the desert. In 1993, the body of a young woman was fund half-buried in the sand. Dead, raped, strangled. Almost four hundred were found in ten years . . . and the total impunity is infuriating. Her monologue, both investigation and cry of revolt, questions and denounces so that we never forget these women. Never.
