"Yuniol" Perez (Shalim Ortiz) and Alberto "Junior" Rios (Frank Perozo) come from opposite sides of the tracks in the Dominican Republic. Aloof and detached, Alberto comes from a wealthy family. Driven and focused, Juan is reared by a devoted mother whose affection makes up for the absence of his father. Juan and his mother survive in a tough and impoverished Barrio on the outskirts of the capital city.
This movie is well done in all the technical aspects, some very good acting and others that just reach the average, but mainly this is a step forward for the Dominican movie industry. The social crisis that is crafted in the film is a day to day situation that is lived by every Dominican fellow.
This is a strong subject that could have reached bigger proportions but in a way sometimes it fails to get the maximum drama out of the plot situations and falls into funny moments. I would say that the final 3 minutes of the film should had been edited and this would have made this film a lot better.
Kudos for Frank Perozo, Henky Madera, and for all the technical staff.
