Storyline

A gripping portrait of one Puerto Rican family living in NYC. Roberto, 29, the eldest son gay and living in Greenwich Village. Marta the family matriarch, living in Brooklyn and raising the grandchildren that have, for the most part been abandonded by their parents. Danny, 23, returning from Riker's Island after spending yet more time in jail. Beatriz, vanishing periodically to indulg her crack cocain habit. Hip-Hop and Latin music serve as the sound track to this honest but often painful portrait of an American family. Written by havan_ironoak@bigfoot.com

Brutal. Sad. Those beautiful children. I pray they are well.
21 April 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

What can I say? The grandmothers struggle broke my heart. Those beautiful little people, will they also fall victim to East New York? I was born in east New York. 1/2 Puertorican, 1/2 Italian. But thank God my family left when i was five! If you want to see what drugs can do to the inner city family, watch this film. One happy note, the Food! Oh, my god, It was awesome. pasteles, arroz con habichuelas and everything else. I hope someday all my people get it together and shun the street and all it's evil pitfalls. The only way out of the ghetto is through education. There is simply no other way. Well maybe through the consciousness that no matter what pulls you out there that if it doesn't pull you in the right direction you have to fight it with everything you have.
