Special Order – Not a Regularly Stocked Item – Sho
Add To Cart
This film by Mark Becker evolves from a verity view of undocumented alien subculture to a deeply personal and bittersweet dramatic story of family, fatherhood, identity, and survival. By day, mariachi musician Carmelo Muniz washes cars, but at night, he and his friend Arturo perform norteno and ranchero music for gringo tips in the taquerias and bars of San Francisco's Mission District. Carmelo's meager itinerant living belies the deep roots and binding ties he has to his native Mexico. His wife, 2 young daughters, and gravely ill mother rely on the money Carmelo sends to them in the little town of Salvatierra.
