This social-themed drama is set in 1950's Mexico, where three sisters known as the "Poquianchis" run a prostitution ring protected by the municpal and state authorities. In 1964, the discovery of several young people who had been assassinated and buried on the sisters' order led to a scrutiny surrounding the corruption involved in the controversial Mexican justice system. Las Poquianchis is directed by Felipe Cazals.
