Growing up along the border has presented me with the opportunity to grasp a variety of social and economic perspectives; this film was my initial foray into exploring biculturalism in my work as a Mexican-American filmmaker. My co-writer and I wanted to craft a minimal narrative that explored an unlikely bicultural relationship between two individuals who are forced into a difficult situation. The project was shot in my hometown of El Paso, Texas with small budget and minimal crew. The film went on to compete at several international festivals and was accepted into the Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner where it later garnered worldwide distribution.

I was the screenwriter, director and editor.
