They were forced to defend their life and their home… brothers and friends turned enemies and fought against each other; the Santa Rosa Valley rejoiced with the blood of his children…

Why the name of El Ojo Parado?

Name given to Ildefonso Castro, a skinny and perverse individual, with exaggeratedly bulging eyes that gave the impression of being fixed on a squashed and rude face. Cheater man of the Castro family who could commit the worst and most cruel acts that could never have been imagined in that desolate Valley of Santa Rosa.
