Shot in Pilsen and Little Village, this video by local director Juan J. Frausto was inspired partly by the loss of friends to violence while he was growing up. The loose narrative, in which a gang leader tries to keep his studious younger brother off the streets and out of “the business,” is punctuated by brawls, shootings, and betrayals—including a robbery by two corrupt cops. It lacks the seductiveness of similar Hollywood features, but that's mostly a good thing: it feels open to street life, reflecting the senseless, almost random quality of its marginalized characters' lives. 98 min.
