Storyline

An economically repressed young man (Bondo) loses his father in his attempt to cross the border (to send money home) at Tijuana, Mexico.

After a deadly attempt at crossing the boarder himself, he resourcefully constructs a flying machine out of a wheel barrow and navigates himself to the Santa Monica pier. There he will begin to complete his fathers dream. Written by Mark Christensen

Great film from an up and coming independent file maker!
8 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

When I watched this movie, I was not sure what to expect. However, it had all the elements a great film has. You bonded with the characters and cheered for them in the end. There is the bad guys and the good guys, but it is not a good vs. evil story. You also get to laugh and cry. You truly feel for the characters the writer has created.

It is a touchy subject matter for many Americans, yet it is told without a bias. It is a good movie to watch, regardless of how you feel about this issue. To add to it, this is not a big studio film, but rather an independent film completely done by the writer. That adds to it in that it is a true American dream! I highly recommend it.
