good little movie, low budget piece of an illegal worker story
25 May 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Basically, its a story about illegal immigrants and their interactions with an upper class of California family, with a bit of an LA gang story throw into the mix.

To sum it all up, a young Mexican kid who is drawn into the gang lifestyle has a change of heart and decides to become a laborer along with other illegal immigrant Mexican workers and the gang lifestyle haunts him, he eventually become a sort of supervisor, him and the handful of illegals he regularly works with end up getting steady work at a particular household in a rich part of town, simple enough but it all ends up turning bad due to misunderstandings and bad decision making on one of the illegal immigrants part and other reasons.

This wasn't a blockbuster, wasn't 200,000,000 budget, but it was a good little flick, had a lot of heart, and realism, I would definitely suggest you check it out, you might enjoy it.
