Storyline

What do you do if the day your first child is to be born is also the same day your father is to be executed? If you're twenty-six-year old MANNY, you use your father's impending execution as an excuse to flee the daunting responsibility of fatherhood. There's only one problem: Manny lives in Monterrey, Mexico and his father sits in on death row in Texas. Against his wife's wishes, Manny embarks on an ill-planned quest to cross the border to see his father, hoping that the trip will buy him time and insight into his upcoming responsibility. CRUZANDO is a road-trip tale about friendship, fatherhood, and self-discovery that winds itself through the distinct culture of the Texas-Mexico border. The film combines off-beat humor with pathos in showing a young man discovering who he is and what he is meant to be. Accompanied by his childhood best friend, he embarks on a journey in which he crosses paths with luchador coyotes, renegade cowboys, desert angels, and a host of others along the ...

Great Indie Film
5 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a quirky indie film with a lot of heart. It has moments of laughter, sadness, a real sense of what a border crossing is like but hopeful and rich in acting, editing, and the cinematography is outstanding. Rent it. You won't be disappointed. I've seen this film at a few film festivals. And had the privileged of attending its screening premiere in McAllen Texas. The audience response was awesome. They laughed a lot. Everyone in the theater really enjoyed the twists and turns Cruzando provided. Its not what you expect from a movie that deals with immigration crossing. It takes you on a ride and it doesn't dwell on the dramatic nature of the immigration experience. It's a good story. You feel for the characters and I love the ending. Bold.
