Based on a true story, POR VIDA is an English/Spanish language urban drama reminiscent of films such as 'Maria Full of Grace', and 'Boyz N the Hood', with the point of difference that it is from the perspective of the 15 year old leader of an all-girl, all-latina gang. Set in LA's notorious South Central district, Por Vida is a powerful and unflinching look at a world most of us know little about yet it is grounded with a sense of hope that a mainstream audience can relate to: there is a better life out there, if you are willing to fight for it.
