When Newcastle United soccer star Santiago Muñez (Kuno Becker) is offered a spot with Real Madrid, he accepts, but the move - accompanied by big money and fame - tests his ties and loyalties to family, friends, and business acquaintances.
Four paramedics on duty in Arizona intercept a distress call from Mexico. Training kicks in as they illegally cross the border to help. Suddenly trapped inside their own ambulance, nothing could prepare them for what they would encounter.
Bolivar De La Cruz, with a baby on the way, has just made the treacherous journey over the border from Mexico to Los Angeles, California, home of the beautiful and restless Lola Sara, whose parents made the same journey some twenty years ago. Now two people from very different sides of the same culture find themselves on a collision course with the events that will change their lives forever.Written by
ESL is a well written and executed film. It has a gritty feel with well developed characters and a plot that does not follow the traditional Hollywood or Indie film cookie cutter arc. Better looking on screen than most indie films which have seen release. This film deserves to be made available to an audience. I saw a screening at the LA Latin Film festival and watched as an audience of over 1000 people were swept up in a story that took us all on a ride we will not soon forget. ESL surpasses similar films of the "Latin American experience" genre such as "Real Women have curves", "Girl Fight" and "Tortilla Soup" with actors who are new to me such as Kuno Becker but whom stand out as talent that will make a mark on the film industry.
