Downbeat, life-on-the-streets drama from director Ramin Bahrani ('Man Push Cart') about a young orphan boy's struggle to survive in New York. Desperate to make a life for himself and his 16-year-old sister Isamar (Isamar Gonzales), Latino orphan Alejandro (Alejandro Polanco) spends his waking hours working in a run down car body repair workshop nestling within one of the city's largest junkyards. Now, as he approaches adolescence, Alejandro, the street savvy boy surrounded by adults, must quickly learn what it takes to become a man if he is to build a future for both himself and Isamar.
