The Boys from the Hood
To the west of San José, capital of Costa Rica, in the middle of marginalization, poverty and social and institutional indifference, a community with more than 35 thousand people struggles, not only to survive, but to find a light, a germ of hope that allows them to change, improve their life situation. Its inhabitants, most of them children and young people, face daily the dilemma of their lives, of their future. Hector and Larry, are two of these young people from different positions now face a formidable challenge: changing their lives. A dilemma because this change means breaking ties and group oaths, leaving addictions of years, getting respected in school and on the street, thus demonstrating that being from La Carpio is not a curse.
