    Synopsis

  • Necaxa is a small town in the Mexican state of Puebla. Here, the first hydroelectric power plant was established in the beginning of the twentieth century. On October 11th of 2009, the Mexican government announced the end of Luz y Fuerza del Centro, that by now had become the main electric power company in the country. More than 44000 employees lost their job. Around 80% of the economical activity in Necaxa came from the 2000 workers of the plant . This is the story of the struggle of a community who resists to disappear.
