Plot: What's the story about?

After a brutal knife attack in prison, a former gang leader (Arturo Muyshondt) ends up in solitary confinement, where he discovers his faith in God and finds his true purpose as a pastor after being released on parole. He seeks out the underprivileged youth of his predominantly Hispanic community so they may find an alternative path to the dangerous gang lifestyle so rampant around them. He wants to establish a green zone to curb the violence, but is met with resistance from rival gang leaders who threaten him, his family and his community. Fighting his inner demons and violent instincts, the pastor must decide between maintaining his newfound faith or returning to the cold-blooded killer he once was.

Knowing Arturo and being a part of his personal journey and this amazing film, has been one of the highlights of my life in service. This is a historical event, not only is this redeeming and inspirational film rooted in real life circumstances, but it is also the very first Latino Christian feature to come out of Hollywood."
