Can a young person in the South Bronx pursue a dream that isn't tied to crime, gang-banging, prostitution, violence, and racism? Tommy is a natural leader and a gifted artist. When Allen, a white kid, moves into the neighborhood with his single mom, he's a victim of constant harassment until Tommy offers friendship. Meanwhile, a corrupt cop hits on Allen's mother and, when she rebuffs him, vows revenge. Forces beyond Tommy and Allen's control put them in the hands of the criminal justice system. A local murder, a rivalry between two young women, and the hot temper of Tommy's older brother make things even more difficult for the friendship and dreams of the young men. Written by
I saw this movie one late night, and could only WISH I could get my time back. It's a hispanic version of Boyz n' The Hood, but they took out a few things like good acting, good dialogue, a plot... I understand that the actors (and I use the word loosely) are not pros, but once you see the movie, you'll understand why. Character development is nil, camerawork is atrocious. This film perpetrates everybody in this neighborhood as a thug, a whore or something of the type. Not ONE person in the movie shows any redeeming value, except the white boy, the reason for the 'plot' of this movie. Once you see this movie, and I'm sorry for you if you do, you'll understand my One Line Summary.
