Dialogue, Martinez selected fragments recorded in different conferences in 2011 of the Mexican writers Sergio González Rodríguez, Leonardo Da Jandra and Élmer Mendoza. These writers touched upon themes such as crime, violence, drug traffic and the war against it, the use of public resources to enrich the political class, the lack of citizen action and other socio-political topics related to Mexico.

These ideas are accompanied by video sequences taken at several highways, which Martínez recorded focusing on abandoned or unused buildings, ‘sculptures’ that resist time.
