A portrait of what was once one of New York City's poorest neighborhoods, the primarily Hispanic section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, known as "Los Sures." The film examines the lives of five Puerto Rican residents of the area: Tito, a 20-year-old who supports his wife and child by stealing and stripping cars; Marta, a single mother struggling to raise her five children on welfare; Ana Maria, an older woman who raised seven children in Los Sures and who relies on her belief in spiritualism to sustain her; Cuso, a 42-year-old self-employed construction worker; and Evelyn, a single mother of two who is employed as a social worker with the National Congress of Neighborhood Women, a community-based organization.
