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

~*~My Own Memories~*~
26 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I saw Nuyorican Dream on HBO a couple of years back it brought tears to my eyes. It hit home, how I lived and in some way still do. I was so happy to see that someone had made this documentary on a PuertoRican family from NY with struggles and heartache from what drugs can do to a family and to self and see what sacrifices some people go through not being as fortunate as others. I as a PuertoRican woman from NY that struggled with siblings becoming drug addicts and in jail a mother who fought for her grandchildren and still taking care of us all, see this documentary as a wake up call to all who don't have it as bad just so you can see what some people go through in life and maybe just maybe you wont look down on us but see us as human beings that are Loving , Caring and all about family. Nothing ever brings us down but keeps us high with love for each other. I am so happy that I found this and was able to share my thoughts and feelings.
