Roosters Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P314526~Milcha Sanchez-Scott~milchasanchezscott]] adapted her own play for this moving and poetic tale of family obsessions directed by [[Performer~P117695~Robert M. Young~robertmyoung]]. [[Performer~P105065~Edward James Olmos~edwardjamesolmos]] stars as Gallo, the macho head of the Morales family. He has been in prison for the last seven years for murdering a man over a cockfight, but now he is returning home to his family -- his wife Juana ([[Performer~P8009~Sonia Braga~soniabraga]]) and his sister-in-law Chata ([[Performer~P1174~Maria Conchita Alonso~mariaconchitaalonso]]). Also awaiting his homecoming are his two children -- Hector ([[Performer~P53177~Danny Nucci~dannynucci]]), who is embittered by his father's imprisonment, and Angela ([[Performer~P223307~Sarah Lassez~sarahlassez]]), who eagerly looks forward to his return. Gallo, however, has his own agenda upon returning home. Consumed by his passion for cockfighting all his years in prison, he wants to begin to raise a new prize flock of roosters -- and he won't let anyone or anything stand in his way. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
