Boyle juxtaposes two Los Angeles couple's lives: one of privilege; the other of illegal immigration. Boyle's plot brings the two families into tragic collision, exposing issues of class divides, problems of illegal Mexican immigration, and environmental degradation. Discussion led by Gene Chavez, bilingual education and cultural diversity consultant with Chavez and Associates.
