The project originally from 2010 responds to the begining of a difficult situation in Mexico, where violence took over our life. Choose your bullets reflects upon how we as a society respond to corruption, violence and bad decisions, encouraging a positive change by believing that each one of us can make a difference. No matter what you do, you should always "shoot for good".
