This documentary chronicles the lives of three young people, one black, one Hispanic, who live in Mexico and who are of mixed race. They are all completely unaware of each other's cultures and live in a society where the only way to survive is to blend in. The film makes a point to explain the extent to which society has not adjusted to this. It's more than just having a "Mexican-American" daughter or son or friend. They are all members of the same culture, and yet the society only has them as "others". So much has been done to eliminate their cultural identity that they have to resort to cannibalism in order to survive. I had a hard time understanding how they could survive the abuse, violence, and hate that they have to endure. There is a reason that the film was made. The author of the book written about these people is killed by a masked gunman. After the story ends, they are taken to a prison where they are given a choice. They can stay on the prison island or they can be sent to a prison in Mexico. The island is a paradise for the black and the Hispanic. They have a beautiful apartment and have a private doctor. The only thing that the guards have to do is tell them that they are "civilized" and they can go to the bathroom and do whatever they want. It's the most amazing and peaceful way to be treated. The young people say that it is a peaceful way to live. The movie is very funny and the camera work is excellent. The story is told in a very clever way, keeping you thinking about it long after you have seen it. It is a great movie, one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. I highly recommend it.

I have been a member of the group for over 20 years, and I don't know of a single member who has not been horrified by the language and attitudes of the other members, the potential violence, and the fact that the group is essentially not a gay group but a straight-based one. I am not one of those who are offended by this, but I can't help but feel that the gay community would be better served if they were more welcoming and accepting of the other members. The group should be considered a supportive group, but not one which is very open to new members. The members have a tendency to get into fights and to steal money. A lot of the members are very rude and disrespectful. I also feel that they are in many ways creating their own community, rather than participating in the gay community. I am not sure how I would describe the rest of the group. I think that they are an idealistic group, which has some interesting members and members-that-need-to-grow. I am not a member, but I would be interested to know more about the members, particularly those who are active in the group. I would like to know what they think of the other members, and what they would do if they were to leave the group. I would like to know if there are any members who are happy with their relationship, and if there are any members who are unhappy with theirs. I have been a member of this group for 10 years, and I have always had the impression that the group is always moving forward, and always trying to do the best for the gay community. They are the most accepting group I have ever been a part of, and I do not think that there should be a reason for them to be, except that they are "out".
