This Wide Angle documentary examines the deep-rooted institutional corruption the attorneys had been battling - a system of bribes, debts, and favors that for decades has prevented the world's tenth-largest country from fulfilling its economic potential. the program also analyzes the effect of President Vicente Fox's election in 2000, the termination of more than 70 years of single-party rule, and the fear that graft and corruption in Mexican politics are intractablel. In addition, writer Enrique Krauze talks with anchor Daljit Dhaliwal."--Container.
