A monster of asphalt, steel and concrete, the highway will change the urban landscape and the lives of city residents. Juan Carlos Rulfo depicts the lives, dreams, hopes and harsh reality of the hundreds of masons and carpenters at work on the road, as well as the toil, friendship and companionship and sense of dignity and will to survive that mark these men.
