Two Mexican youths from different milieus: Franco, son of a wealthy family, lives in the luxurious housing estate Páradais. Polo, far less privileged, works there as a gardener. At night, the two outsiders meet, drink, and hatch sinister plans. A novel about machismo and violence, about the effects of economic and social inequality, told »with an absolute ear for the vernacular and a neurosurgeon’s precision for cruelty« [Mariana Enríquez].

Event language(s): Spanish/ German
