East L.A. King
An East L.A. gang leader looking to pull-off the heist that will set him and his pregnant girlfriend up for life discovers that sometimes things don't work out exactly as you plan in a harrowing story from the streets directed by Jackie Torres. Jose was determined to provide his wife and child with the money needed to let them live a comfortable and carefree existence, but his violent methods of achieving his goal ultimately led him to jail instead of East Street. Now trapped behind bars and unable to care for his newborn son Shepito, Jose begins to question the error of his criminal ways and soon resolves to raise Shepito in an environment free from the influence of violent street gangs. Upon being released from jail and discovering that Shepito has taken in with his old gang and that ambitious gang-leader Joker has corrupted everything that Jose holds sacred in life, the recently paroled gangster is forced to resort to his old ways one last time in an effort to save his family and break the cycle of violence, even if it costs him his life. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
