A classic case of: No Production Budget = Excellent Film
It's a pretty basic story of friendship and loyalty. The acting and production were minimalist, and this approach worked well.
A 'desperate for work,' forth-generation Italian American, living in
Queens, befriends a Mexican day laborer(jornalero).
It portrays the difficulties of everyday life for illegal workers in this
country. I wish this film had more exposure and wider distribution. It seems like it was filmed on a cheap digital cam-corder, but this does not detract from the film, and might actually add something to its gritty realism.
