Abstract:

"Startled by the killing of two young women lawyers, one from the political right and the other from the left, Mexico struggles to confront its own political morass. This Wide Angle documentary examines the deep-rooted institutional corruption the attorneys had been battling - a system of bribes, debts, and favors that for decades has prevented the world's tenth-largest country from fulfilling its economic potential. the program also analyzes the effect of President Vicente Fox's election in 2000, the termination of more than 70 years of single-party rule, and the fear that graft and corruption in Mexican politics are intractablel. In addition, writer Enrique Krauze talks with anchor Daljit Dhaliwal."--Container.
