A stranger in a strange land, Bolivar De La Cruz has just crossed the border from Mexico in search of a better life. ESL is a beautifully rendered tale about a young man's emotional and physical struggles as he faces numerous plights in an unfamiliar and seemingly unwelcoming city (Los Angeles). We, the audience, watch as he does what he needs to do to sustain himself in a city that offers him chances to "make it," but these opportunities are dangled before him, at what might be seen as a high, "personal" cost.
