Résumé: Drame. Carlos Galindo, immigrant clandestin d'origine mexicaine, tire le diable par la queue à Los Angeles, où il travaille au noir comme journalier auprès d'un petit entrepreneur en entretien paysager.

Carlos y parvient grâce à un prêt de sa soeur, mais dès son premier jour à l'ouvrage, un ouvrier qu'il a embauché s'enfuit avec le véhicule pendant qu'il a le dos tourné. Aux abois, incapable d'alerter les autorités sous peine d'être déporté, l'homme se tourne vers son fils adolescent Luis, qui lui cause bien des soucis. Ils se lancent ensemble dans la ville à la recherche du voleur, à l'aide de quelques indices et des connaissances de l'adolescent acquises auprès d'un gang de rue qui sème la terreur dans son école.
