Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this drama has some mature and emotionally difficult themes. It revolves around a young boy who must deal with his grandmother's (peaceful) death and an illegal border crossing between Mexico and the United States. There are some brief images of obvious prostitutes, an abusive pimp, and a twitchy junkie. Expect some mild (though potentially upsetting) violence in the form of chases and rough takedowns by INS agents and local L.A. police. The central boy is also threatened by bullies, thieves, and a child trafficker. Mostly mild language, though "s--t" is used.

Sexual Content

Several women wear sundresses or close-fitting tops that show cleavage. A pimp appears on the sidewalk with prostitutes (they wear skimpy outfits and high heels).

Violence

Harrowing images of border crossing. Border guards chase illegal immigrants; INS authorities chase and grab illegal workers; a policeman beats an apparent criminal. Police drag away Enrique, pushing him against the cruiser and handcuffing him roughly. A child finds his grandmother dead in her bed and is very sad.

Language

Words include "s--t" (with "bull-"), "hell," "son of a bitch," and "damn."

Social Behavior

Mexicans cross into the U.S. illegally to escape economic hardship; Caucasian Americans are repeatedly selfish and cruel; a little boy is alternately aided by good-hearted adults and hassled by bullies or thieves.

Consumerism

Brands include PopTarts, Walkman.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Cigarette smoking. A junkie character's arms show track marks, indicating past drug use. Bullies drink beer.
