The characters are seen to have motives and feelings. Octavio made enough money to cover his flight with Susana. Octavio also paid the owner of the venue of dog fighting, Mauricho, to have Ramiro beaten up. To demonstrate revenge, Ramiro stole the money and left with Susana instead. In the film therefore, there are aspects of money, love and revenge. This has also been demonstrated by the rest of the players of the film. The segments of all the characters are shown with presence of dog fights which was not accepted in the city of Mexico. Dog fighting for instance, gave Octavio money and therefore it is true that underground economy can give people of lower class ability of making money just like the way dog fighting gave Octavio money.
