Abstract:

This Mexican documentary takes viewers into the agricultural fields, where children barely bigger than the buckets they carry work long hours, in often hazardous conditions, picking tomatoes, peppers, or beans, for which they are paid by weight. When not in the fields, the daily lives of children can also include making earthen bricks, cutting cane, gathering firewood, plowing fields with oxen and planting by hand, or carving wooden figures and weaving baskets to sell. These children and their families survive only by unrelenting labor. Despite that, the cycle of poverty is passed on from one generation to another.
