This film portrays the culture clash and problems among members of a family along the U.S.-Mexico border.
This film depicts the life of a family that consists of the parents who were born in Mexico and their two sons and daughter who were born in the United States. The film basically evolves around the culture-clash between parents and sons/daughters. The father, in a way, is sorry to have left his hometown,Mexico, while his daughter wants to deny all her heritage/background saying that she will marry this white man and she sometimes refuses to speak Spanish since she feels embarrassed about it. (spoiler ahead) The daughter wants to run away from home, but eventually returns because her boyfriend was just taking advantage of her saying that she was just "his bitch". I really enjoyed the story and the film, not only because of the theme/subject that was involved,but because it was also filmed where I am originally from,-
In my opinion, the story was well told and explores the feelings and conflicts of the family members.
