Two neighborhood boys find a case of stolen money. The plan goes south when the dealers discover the thieves and set out to get their money back at any cost.
22 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Writer/Directer Jon Ullman has made a great film on a shoestring budget with more passion and talent than many top filmmakers could hope to accomplish. The combination of characters, tone, and story wave a city tale as classic as any urban fairytale.

With impressive performances by Luis, Raul's and the freshly talented Rayniel,the film is gritty and real and the backdrop is the perfect setting for the subtle action. As reality closes in on them and those they love, the film gets louder as the tensions rise. The background noises which were passive become more intense stirring the unsettling feeling that comes with injustice. Ullman captures the beat of the streets and the life of the neighborhood complete with the broken dreams and great expectations.
