About the Movie
Jack Maldonado is a hot-blooded, ambitious young man who, fueled by misguided nostalgia, buys a small apartment building in the Bronx and moves his boisterous family into the apartments to live rent-free. His parents, Carlos and Martha, sister Nadia, brother Richie and his wife Rosa, Grandmother Abuela and cousins Hector and Manny, all converge under one roof. Tension quickly builds as Jack imposes his views on everyone around him, including his fiancée, Lily. All the while, he hides the fact that his corner store is a front for selling marijuana, but soon has to deal with new unwanted competition. It's only a matter of time before Jack's family and 'business' lives collide in tragic fashion.
I saw this at a a screening and the performances by E.J. Bonilla, Melissa Fumero and the rest of the cast are stellar. The story is compelling and had shades of The Godfather. Good flick!
What an impacting Film!
I was immediately taken in, the acting in this film is top notch! E.J. Bonilla did an incredible job with his role Jack and I also loved Chino (Fidel Vicioso) his passion came through, and brought it to life. I highly recommend ordering this film! Cynthia Sepulveda
Best Film of the Year!
I was lucky enough to see the world premiere of this amazing movie at the 2013 L.A. Film Festival, and I’m thrilled the rest of the world gets to see it now on iTunes. An incredible story about what some people will do to keep their family together. Great performances, great writing, and great directing! Enjoy!
