Set in Echo Park, Los
Angeles, the film follows the lives of two young Mexican American
cousins who become estranged from their families: Magdalena because
of her unwed teenage pregnancy and Carlos because of his
homosexuality. The third issue entered upon by the film is the
gentrification of a populous district of Los Angeles, and the
resultant culture clash.
The film is spoken in the
mixture of English and Spanish ("Spanglish") used by bilingual
people who switch easily from one tongue to another; some of the
humor is best appreciated by bilingual viewers.
