Ex-gang members in search of a more dignified life, FIRMES is the story of the hardships and triumphs faced by a group of Mexican immigrants fighting for survival in the Bronx. United by their love for art, culture and Mexican traditions, they’ve formed strong bonds and a solid community. Together they attempt to stay away from gang life, get over past mistakes and hash out a legitimate existence in the tangled urban landscape of New York City.
