In his remarkable second feature, Spanish-born filmmaker Antonio Mendez Esparza follows-up his debut drama Aqui y alla with another sensitive portrait of a struggling family. Stressed by her job in a diner, single mother Regina (Regina Williams) is raising her two children in northern Florida. When her 14-year-old son Andrew (Andrew Bleechington) has another brush with the law, she worries he'll wind up in prison like his father. Mendez Esparza employs documentary-style realism in this snapshot of race, class and the bonds of family in contemporary America.
