Gun Hill Road
Filmfest 2011

After serving three years in prison, Enrique comes home to the Bronx to find that his 16 year-old son Michael, is not the same boy he left behind when he went to prison. Michael is beginning to explore a sexual transformation that tears at the very core of who Enrique believes himself to be. The street-hardened father is incensed, but his questions are only met with protective silence from his wife Angela, who finds herself caught in the middle of the ensuing battle of wills between the two people she loves most in the world. She is desperately clinging to the love she once had for Enrique while trying to protect her son from his father’s unrelenting campaign to force him into the kind of man men are supposed to be. If Enrique makes one false move, he will be back in the system, but his inability to control his money, the love of his wife or the life of his son have built up a sweltering frustration inside him that results in his breaking the law again...
