Certainly immigration is a theme or more to the point, illegal immigration. Thousands of Mexicans illegally cross into the United States. Enrique goes looking for his mother who has left to support him. There is a huge underground workforce in the United States of illegal immigrants who work for low wages and little benefits. They do this to support their impoverished families in Mexico.
