Through his interest in autoconstrucción  ("self-construction"), Abraham Cruzvillegas
explores economies of the makeshift, the handmade and the recycled. In this film,
commissioned by REDCAT in Los Angeles, Cruzvillegas examines his childhood home and
 the neighborhood of Ajusto, a district in the south of Mexico City founded by migrants who,
like his parents, settled in what was deemed uninhabitable land in the 1960s
