Sangre de mi Sangre is the story of a Mexican boy who smuggles himself to Brooklyn to meet his long-lost father, only to have his identity stolen upon arrival by an impostor.


Determined to find a father he has never met, a young man flees the slums of Mexico and heads to the gritty backstreets of New York City. But when a shrewd thief steals his identity – and schemes to rob the father he has so desperately been seeking – both men unexpectedly find themselves launched on a riveting journey to the dark side of the American Dream.

Sangre de mi Sangre won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007.
