Mexican English teacher Pablo Fernandez seeks a better life for himself and his spoiled daughter Christina (5) after losing his wife in a hurricane. Pablo becomes a tomato picker as illegal immigrant in California. While driving his illegal employer Charlie's truck, he accidentally runs over Dinah Knightly (6), who later dies. Dumb, arrogant detective Bryant and brighter but superstitious rookie Steven Lightning investigate and set chase. Petty would be-TV reporter Soid finds out first and blackmails Pablo to take her along fleeing to Mexico or she'll report him. The Fernandez's make it to Canada. On the road improvisation gets out of hand.Written by
Jesus Nebot's film makes me think, "What would I do?"
I thought the story was very good and spent the entire movie trying to figure how things would work out for Pablo and Cristina. Things did work out, but not as ideal as one would hope.
Jesus Nebot gave a very touching and convincing performance as Pablo. Cristina, played by Vernee Watson, was adorable and and I look forward to seeing her grow up on screen. Lindsay Price did an excellent job playing the part of the struggling reporter looking to make a good story, but gives in to her heart and feelings.
I was pleasantly surprised by the cinematography and the style of the movie.
I look forward to Jesus Nebot's next film!
