Storyline

Reynaldo Pedro Ferrer, a former terrorist involved in the independence movement for Puerto Rico, must confront his past after the murder of his eldest son. His father, Popo, a high level member of the movement, is posing as a double agent in order to protect his family and still preserve the group's quest for freedom. Still active within the movement is Pedro, a political prisoner who is willing to die for the cause. He secretly assigns a key operative, Cesar, to Reynaldo's son, in an effort to lure Reynaldo back into the movement. Reynaldo must come to peace with his past as he attempts to avenge his son's death and save his family from ruin. Written by The Film's Producers

Interesting topic became unbearable and embarrassing to watch.
26 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this film at one of the Film Festival screenings in New York. At first I was excited to finally see a film that touches on this esoteric Puerto Rican subject. But, thirty minutes into the film my friends and I walked out extremely disappointed. Bad direction, bad writing. A straight up embarrassment to a history rife with drama and conflict. I did like some of the scenes in the beginning of the film. But, no matter how pretty they were to look at, it can't make up for the lack artistic and professional handling of this film. Whomever rated this nine stars is probably a fan of films like "Ishtar" and "Heaven's Gate". We need to put quality Boricua stories on the screen that reflect quality Boricua talent. Not surprised it hasn't gotten distribution yet. Don't waste your time.
