When Andres Segovia and his three siblings lose their parents in an auto accident, the oldest brother sneaks them away from their El Paso foster family to Juarez to raise them himself. But poverty leads to drugs, prostitution, and sexual abuse, and the family becomes unglued. Andres finally makes his way back to El Paso, where he meets Grace Delgado, a social worker to whom he goes for court-mandated counseling after his first arrest. Grace is a widow and cancer patient, and her empathy for Andres leads her to examine her shaky relationship with her own son, as well as her inability to relate to his wife.
What is the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer?
The Tomatometer measures the percentage of Approved Tomatometer Critics who recommend a certain movie --
or the number of good reviews divided by the total number of reviews.
A good review is denoted by a FRESH tomato.
A bad review is denoted by a ROTTEN tomato.
In order for a movie to receive an overall rating of FRESH on Rotten Tomatoes, the reading on the Tomatometer for that movie must be at
least 60%. Otherwise, it is ROTTEN. The ratings and reviews are licensed by the Phoenix Public Library from Rotten Tomatoes. For more information,
