Café Chavalos

2008 NR

Shining a light on a unique restaurant in Granada, Nicaragua, that serves up more than just good food, this documentary shares the remarkable stories of the street kids -- or chavalos -- who've changed their lives by working there. Growing up in one of Central America's poorest cities, these kids have seen it all, including gang violence, suicide and drug abuse. But now they're learning the value of hard, honest work -- and the power of hope.
