This story is loosely based on a true story that took place in the Tower of David – a half-built skyscraper in downtown
. The tower was depicted in the TV series
Homeland as a haven for criminals. Here
is depicted more as a sanctuary for the disenfranchised. Caracas, Venezuela
The characters are colorful to the extreme in this tale, each with their own sad story. The Chinaman is an enormous enforcer type while the cerebral Nacho was saved from death by an informal step-father. The story is full of squalid scenes and helplessly hopeless people.
I suspect the disjointed feel of the story was to illustrate the disjointed aspects of the real story.
