Back in the middle of the past century when this movie was filmed(1952), producers started a trend with pictures that were meant to convey a social message to the people, specially the lower brackets who were in the majority of cases, illiterate.

The movie in itself is nothing really extraordinary, but it allows the viewer to understand how these persons lived in the 1950's Mexico.
