The Bastards
Filmfest 2008

A 24 hour period in the lives of Fausto and Jesus, two illegal Mexican day-laborers in LA. Each day another task, each day the same pressure to find money. They go about their daily routine, standing on the corner at the Home Depot waiting for work to come. Today, the job they are given is well paid compared to their poor usual wages. Today, Jesus carries a shotgun inside his backpack ...
