  Contemporary Tragedy
  Timboctou in Spanish slang, works like the adjective which describes a place far away: “As far as Timboctou…”

In this case Timboctou is paradoxically presented as a very close place to the reality that Mexico is going through with drug trafficking and the unconditional buyer and consumer, the neighboring country, the United States.

Mexico’s current drug-trafficking context can go beyond the limits that we once thought remote, a network so wide and dense that many people live underneath it without even noticing it.
Timboctou is a window through which we can see the different links that form the narcotics traffic chain of corruption and death; one where we can glimpse absurdity of the violence that swallows the daily lives of millions of people.

A government employee, drivers, foreign consumers and more characters that just where in the wrong place at the wrong time… in Timboctou.
