“When I was a kid, I stopped working, I stopped doing the things I had to do and I went to the local square to make some harm. But later, when I got caught and I got bigger, it was no longer harmful there. I would grab a gun and will go stealing; and if I had to hit someone to get the money, I would do it. Because by then I was already poisoned.”
Mario Alberto Ríos, a common thief from Córdoba, tells his life in his own words. His story are centered on villas, prisons, pensions and slums from the years of the first Peronism to the hectic days of late 2001. Marginalized as much of the page of policemen as of the judicial file, the single voice of Mario shoots its own version of the facts.
