Filmmaker Laurie Collyer traces a year in the lives of the Gutierrez family, Nuyoricans who eke out a hardscrabble existence in Brooklyn. Robert, a schoolteacher, has escaped the clutch of poverty, but he's the sole exception. Brother Danny is in and out of jail, sister Beatriz is a former teenage mother with a drug problem, and long-suffering family matriarch Marta quietly struggles to support her grandchildren with what little money welfare and her job as a street vendor provide.
