Greencard Warriors

Set against the backdrop of Bush’s War on Terror and Barack Obama’s rise to the presidency, “Greencard Warriors” follows 14-year-old Angel (assured newcomer Angel Amaral), an undocumented Latino, as he struggles to find his place in an increasingly violent world. Dangling the promise of naturalization papers, the military seems to offer Angel’s family a chance for a brighter future if they send his older brother into the U.S. Army. But with his protective eldest brother gone, Angel is left to the designs of a local street gang – whose members object to his developing romance with an African-American teen (Paige Hurd) – and the family must deal with the grim consequences of the choices they have made in pursuit of the American Dream.
