Even though the majority of cases presented to judicial offices in Bogotá are misdemeanors resulting from an abject social reality, government officials have sought to overly prosecute such crimes. To sell pirated CDs, to steal a cell phone, or to simply sleep on the streets may garner a particular individual a multi-year prison sentence.

BAGATELA provides a portrait of Justice through the backdrop of petty crimes that occur on a daily basis in Bogotá... a city accustomed to dealing with both violence and inequality."
