Mano de obra

In Mexico City, a group of construction workers toil to complete a luxurious villa on time. The fall of Claudio from the upper floor to his death devastates his brother Francisco, who worked alongside him. His grief shifts to fury when medical tests allegedly indicate alcohol in Claudio’s system, offering the owner a way out of compensation. Enraged by this outrageous display of injustice, Fransisco meticulously weaves a plan of counterattack. A precise and crushingly effective minimalistic thriller, of organically juxtaposed layers, that “constructs” an edifice of class-clashes and power structures, on its way to an unexpected culmination.
