This event will focus on the theme of: Immigration

Summary: Carlos Galindo is a decent man, a Mexican single parent working as a gardener in California to raise Luis, his fourteen-year-old son, whom Carlos is frightened will drift into local gang culture. Luis is bitter about his mother not being around and feels alone and abandoned because she went away. Carlos is determined to understand Luis, and have Luis understand him. Father and son bond as they reclaim a vehicle that was stolen from them; however, Carlos attracts police attention making his future in America uncertain when it is discovered that he is an illegal immigrant.
