Synopsis
For over sixty years, children have been born and raised here, parents and grandparents eat and survive here. Thousands of families have thrived in the largest and most toxic and dangerous area in all of Central America. For decades, the Guatamala City Garbage Dump and its inhabitants ("guajeros") who recycle the city's trash have been shunned by society and ignored by the government, until a disastrous and fateful event in January 2005 forever changed the face of this landfill and the many people who've called it home.
