Hope is the greatest gift of all. John Leguizamo gives the performance of his career as Gulf War veteran and washed-up prizefighter Frank Diaz, who finds himself and his family evicted from their New York City home. But after months spent working as a day laborer and living in a homeless shelter, Frank finally receives good news on Christmas Eve: There's an apartment available in a nearby housing project if Frank can prove he's legally employed. As the rest of the city prepares for their holiday, Frank and his 10-year-old stepson (a breakthrough performance by young David Castro) hit the cold streets in a desperate search to find a job and some hope by Christmas morning. Leonor Varela (Cleopatra) and Jerry Ferrara (Entourage) co-star in this gritty drama from writer/director Salvatore Stabile about the bond of family and the harsh reality of America's working poor.
