Movie Info

Four blue collar Latino San Antonio restaurant workers become involved in a hunt for a mythical buried chest of silver coins with a startlingly tragic outcome. Jesse (Jesse Borrego), a dishwasher, is self-taught, intelligent, and very bitter; he's spent years putting together the pieces of the puzzle that lead to the hidden treasure of Jesus Gonzales, the Judas-like traitor who was paid to turn in Gregorio Cortez, a turn-of-the-century Mexican folk hero. Hard working cook Miguel (Jacob Vargas) is Jesse's happy-go-lucky cousin who is working on a graphic novel about Cortez, whom Miguel insists is an ancestor. Nena (Maria Candelaria) is a waitress on her way to graduate school when she discovers the plan to recover the silver, and she involves Carlos (Rick Delgado), a waiter who has had a falling out with Jesse. Somehow they have to get to the spot of the buried silver, which happens to be in the middle of a U.S. military base, and Jesse decides the best cover is during the annual Come and Take It Day celebration that commemorates the Cortez events.more

Audience Reviews for Come and Take It Day

SHORT, SIMPLE, ULTRA LOW BUDGET FILM ISN'T TOO BAD AT ALL. THE CAST EMERGES NICELY INTO WELL DEFINED CHARACTERS. THE AMATEUR ACTORS DO PRETTY WELL. DIRECTOR JIM MENDOLA HAS A GOOD STYLE AND AN EYE FOR NICE LITTLE TOUCHES. REALLY A 5.5/10
