Free Movie Screening of "A Better Life"

Come and join the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) with Free Food and a Free Movie Screening, the second in our Latino Film Series. We will show the award-winning film "A Better Life" which depicts a story of the struggles in life of an immigrant man and his family in the US. ‘"A Better Life’' is about Carlos Galindo's life, a veteran day laborer in the city of Los Angeles who has trouble connecting with his son, Luis, whose gang-affiliated girlfriend is tempting him to ignore his father's example of living a clean life.  To improve his and his son’s living situation, Carlos buys a truck to begin working as a self-employed man and earn more money. But when the truck is stolen, his hopes for a more affluent life are dashed. Unable to turn to the police for help as he is an undocumented immigrant, father and son embark on a quest to find the vehicle.
