Tumin is a portrait of the town of El Espinal, a forgotten little municipality in the mountains of Totonacapan in northern Veracruz state, which decided to design its own economic system and printed communal money called the Tumin; this currency is based on the barter syste. Thus they began an autonomous project with their own resources, unconnected to the government´s hand and running countercurrent to the capitalist system.
