Dominican film that shows the immigration problems
26 November 1998 | by (Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

This is a Dominican film of low cost. The Dominican movie is growing, slowly but firm. This film is from the pioneers, shows the sad life of the poor people who only thing in resolve their problems get out their country looking for the United State.

This a cultural film. Please if you looking for shots or sex not lose your time with this modest film and young movie.
