A house close to the northwestern Mexican border with the United States. In 2012 two mass graves were found on the premises, where the bodies of potentially hundreds of murder victims had been dissolved in acid. The graves are now sealed, however, the remains alongside an estimated 17,000 liters of acid have also been sealed inside.

Some of the embedded ideas include fear, the other, segregation, inequality, privatisation, etc.
