Sin Nombre -review

Sin Nombre - Takes us into the world of a gang in Honduras and the journey that many immigrants make to the U.S. I'm not sure how close this film is to real life but, I like how they took time to show an immigration journey and the many obstacles. The tattoo's that the gang members had especially the leader were unique. They are pictured to the left. The film tells two stories. One story is about a young man who's a member of a notorious gang and in love. He does the unspeakable leading him to run for his life. The other story is about a a young woman traveling with many other immigrants up to Texas after being separated from family. The two cross paths, fall in love, and journey to escape their pasts.

This film is worth the watch. Medium star
