Interesting story of Mexican families who settle in East Los Angeles in the days before gangs. We never see how harmonious things were. Then the challenges of their children as society changed and life was harder and more complicated. I was moved by this story and also felt Jimmy Smits did an outstanding job of expressing how difficult this change was on a young man torn between two cultures. I recommend this movie.
