Thought-Provoking & Hits Close to Home
13 May 2014 | by (Tarzana, CA) – See all my reviews

As a Latina woman, I have heard the stories about gangs/violence and know the vicious cycle of 'revenge killing' is all too common; this movie places a spotlight on the topic and -- I warn you -- may cause you to tear up (I know I did)! I love the casting of Emilio Rivera as the protagonist, he is such a great actor and you can tell the subject matter of this short film is one that hits home for him. Rivera understood Ms. Howard's vision and did a wonderful job of bringing the viewer into his shoes through his powerful performance.

I intend to share this movie once available, I believe it is worth watching and will generate much-needed discussions about a serious issue that still plagues many urban areas.
