The exodus of migrants from the town of Arriaga (Chiapas) to the village of Ixtepec (Oaxaca). Hundreds of people coming from Central America climb to the top of the wagons of this train, that goes through Mexico from south to north, in search of a better future. They must avoid sleeping on the top because they can fall to the railways, but they are also exposed to raping, assaulting or kidnapping by the organized criminal groups as “Los Zetas”.
