Storyline

Mexican English teacher Pablo Fernandez seeks a better life for himself and his spoiled daughter Christina (5) after losing his wife in a hurricane. Pablo becomes a tomato picker as illegal immigrant in California. While driving his illegal employer Charlie's truck, he accidentally runs over Dinah Knightly (6), who later dies. Dumb, arrogant detective Bryant and brighter but superstitious rookie Steven Lightning investigate and set chase. Petty would be-TV reporter Soid finds out first and blackmails Pablo to take her along fleeing to Mexico or she'll report him. The Fernandez's make it to Canada. On the road improvisation gets out of hand. Written by KGF Vissers

Definite must see. Great drama!
14 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This is a great story. Pablo makes you see and understand that what you see on the surface, like on the media or reading about someone who has committed a crime, it is not always true or the story has missed the 'why' and 'compassion' of why the person handled it like they did. This story makes you wonder what you would do in that situation. What would you do for your child. How far would you go. Also, the story makes you wonder how you would feel if you were on the other side as well. Would you forgive. How would you feel being the victim. The ending made a tear and was happy and sad at the same time. I just recommend this flick. And this is not a 'chick flick' guys so watch it!
