"In each column, a soul has to rest." This is one worker's eerie description of the building of a second deck to Mexico City's inner Periferico freeway in Juan Carlos Rulfo's documentary, which reveals the optimism of the downtrodden workers at the back-breaking end of the process.

This despite terrible pay, hours, danger and the irony that none of them can afford to drive. Not to mention the Devil, who has souls to take to ensure the columns never collapse.
