The abuse of power occurs or can occur in any area. political, economic, media, police etc. Let us understand by “power” the capacity of a person, situation or thing to influence, modify or positively or negatively alter a certain reality. Likewise, let us understand by “abuse”, the improper use of the ability to influence, of one (s) person (s) over another (s) that usually causes damage of various kinds.

The greater the accumulated power, the greater the risk of imbalance in the relationship process. If having power puts us at risk of being potential abusers, not having it puts us at risk of being abused by those who hold it.

In this film by the writer José Ramón Nevárez, characters are presented who use their quotas of power to abuse, convinced that they act appropriately, however the viewer finds the dilemmas of when to use force, prudence, discretion, guilt and other factors that make us hesitate when power is bastard.
