An American Film about a Mexican immigrant family seeking “una vida mejor” (a better life) in East L.A.   Mostly in English, with some Spanish (with English subtitles).   El mexicano Demián Bichir interpreta a un hombre trabajador, un inmigrante que es papá soltero y busca darle lo necesario a su hijo con el propósito de que tenga una buena vida en Estados Unidos.
