The movie plays on the experience of the immigrant Latin@s in the United States and how family is always there. For instance, Carlito's grandmother gets sick after his birthday party and passes away, he immediately leaves everything behind and emerges in a journey to find his mom in Los Angeles. He crossed the border with only a backpack and his mom's P.O. Box address. The movie signifies the importance of family that many advertisements allude to. Furthermore, this movie shows the importance of work when Latin@s come to the United States, and that although their jobs are at times unjust they deal because that is what they are here to do.
