Storyline

Juan Garcia is a boy on the threshold of manhood living in a gang-controlled neighborhood. His role models could not be further apart: his older sister Angie, a single mom, struggling to gain a foothold in the white corporate world and his uncle Manny, an ex-gang member, who has fallen into an acting career playing gang bangers since his release from prison. With the future on his doorstep, Juan, like most boys, can only think of girls and is unaware of the judicial system's hard line stance against gang affiliation. Written by Strike One Films

One of the most powerful films I ever seeing!
28 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Strike One is of of the most inspiring films I had ever seeing! I really recommend this movie to everyone and especially to all parents; As a mother I was really moved by the story of Juan Gracia. The film message is powerful and educational at the same time. The writing is amazing, and the Director and producers really did a good job casting the right actors, Johnny Ortiz, Danny Trejo, Maria Isa, Alma Martinez each of them are truly amazing on each of their roles. The photography of Strike One is also spectacular! If you have the opportunity to attend one of their screenings, go and see this film!!!I promise that you would not regret! and tell of you friends about it too, together we can help bring this very important message to all parents.
