Summary

Esta es la descarnada y conmovedora historia del escuadrón de la muerte: un grupo de homeless que sobreviven en las calles del Centro Histórico de esta nueva Ciudad de México.
 
El Tonaya no perdona es una pieza de violentísima textura y lenguaje crudo que pone la mirada en la herida supurante de aquellos grupos que viven en el margen de todo: lo social, lo familiar, lo sentimental, lo humano.

«Así, ñero, vivir en las calles de esta ciudad es romperse la madre, pelarle los dientes al destino, saber que ésta es tu última pinches oportunidad de ser algo, pese a que este #ser algo# signifique pasar hambre, entrar en delirios, tirarse de cabeza, hacerse daño, morirse a cachos: deshacerse. la calle es del escuadrón y el escuadrón somos nosotros: el salva, el chaparro, el ojitos, la güera y yo».

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

This is the gut-wrenching and moving story of the death squad: a group of homeless people who try to survive in the streets of the Historic Center of a new Mexico City.
 
Tonaya Does Not Forgive is a fierce piece of work with a strong and raw language that looks at the open wounds of those groups that live on the fringes of everything: society, families, feelings, and human interactions as a whole.
 
“And so this is how it is, to live on the streets of this city is to give it all you have, to not look away from destiny’s face, to know that this is your last opportunity to become something, even though “to be something” means to go hungry, to suffer from delusions, to throw yourself head first, to hurt yourself, to die little by little. We are all part of the streets and part of the squad: Salva, Shorty, Small Eyes, Blondie, and me.”
