Storyline

This is a shocking film that deals with a 15-year-old boy who rents his body to men in order to pay for his drug abuses. Fran, tired of being termed a homosexual by others, confides in his best friend and dealer David who advises him to visit Perla, a prostitute. Fran later encounters a fair-haired girl, Angelica, and is initially attracted towards her, but soon the old man who had introduced him to the rent boy lifestyle appears, which leaves Fran clueless about life, his sexual orientation and priorities.

Gritty without a brain
12 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a good idea for a film. It's covers an issue that is indeed a problem in Mexico and elsewhere around the world; kids on there own in poor neighborhoods "forced" to resort to prostitution and drugs just to get food and survive. But as far as I could tell, this film didn't really say anything about how this happens or on a basic level, is there hope of a different way of life in which these kids could find some peace? It's a dismal film without much of a brain. It's the easiest thing in the world for a storyteller to say; "this is how it is" and nothing more. I'm not going to waste anymore time with this one...it's not worth it.
