Storyline

Four stories that examine the everyday lives of ordinary Los Angelenos: "ISLAND IN THE RIVER" introduces Happy, a withdrawn teenage girl with a passion for spray paint and Hip Hop. On the concrete banks of the Los Angeles river, her graffiti masterpiece is being created, a vision of Payasa, the weeping clown. At home, her mom and mom's boyfriend fight over money. At school, she is chased home by boys who hate her otherness. But in the river, there is yet another "other", Sal Marino homeless and so disconnected from normal life that she can not hear him while she paints her private vision. That is, until it is too late. "A WARM PLACE" introduces Avo and his wife Allegra who lived with their daughter across the river on the East Bank. "Lived" because their daughter recently drowned in the river, and with it the very spark that made their married life possible. Together, they must find a way back to "a warm place." "THE HEALER" introduces Ridley who is called home to Los Angeles to ... Written by anonymous

A true film about Los Angeles and how we don't know our neighbors.
7 October 2007 | by vriechersSee all my reviews

This is a very moving film. I really enjoyed it. All the actors were excellent! I especially liked the music and the story between the Armenian parents. The images of the Los Angeles river were really beautiful set against the freeway. I've never seen a film like this with so little dialog yet I hardly noticed. I hear it will screen again in Los Angeles on November 3rd. I definitely would like to see it again because it's the kind of film that you want to watch more than once to really understand it. I thought it was much more original than Crash. I see others that haven't seen it compare it to Crash. I can tell you after seeing it there is very little comparison. This is really a story about the people that live in east- side of Los Angeles. Crash focused more on the west side of the city.
