“The hole in the fence”, by Joaquín del Paso makes a criticism of the social, economic, and political elite that maintains a sustained indoctrination from cruelty.

However, the discovery of a hole in the fence that surrounds the camp triggers tragic and disturbing events, making the boys, cruel and violent in their actions but shielded in faith, to perpetrate all kinds of violence.
“The film speaks of the foundation and origin, of that power sustained in the sense of community of the privileged against the enemy, the poor, the immigrant, the different, in short,” explained Del Paso.
According to the director, a very current structure in Mexico today, where “power for power’s sake is disguised as something spiritual.”
