Storyline

Set against the backdrop of Bush's War on Terror and Barack Obama's rise to presidency, the film follows the story of 14-year-old Angel, an undocumented Latino teen, who struggles to find his place in an increasingly violent world. With the promise of naturalization papers, the US Military presents Angel's family with the opportunity for a brighter future if they send his older brother into the US Army. With his eldest brother gone, Angel is left to the designs of a local street gang, and the family left to deal with the consequences of the choices they have made. Written by Crosstown

A good movie, so real it's depressing.

the trailer that convince me to see the movie told me that Many Perez gives a great performance as a immigrant father only doing what he thinks is right for his entire family, and the trailer was right about that, but the movie really focus on a 14 year old boy whose a part of this family and how he deals with living in the intercity.

The title would lead you to believe that the main focus on the movie is about a father convincing his son to join the army because the army convinced him that if he can convince his oldest son to do it a green card will be issued for the entire family, and even though this is the theme that ignites the movie, the movie quickly focus on 14 year old Angel whose life falls apart when his older brother, who was protecting him from the dangers of the city, does not come back.

The movie was done well but it depressed me. It's like Boyz in the Hood or South Central, but in those movies at least one character gets a silver lining. I do recommend seeing the movie but not if your in a good mood cause it will bring you out of it. It's so real
