ShowBizCafe.com invites you to see an advanced screening of the comedy ‘La Mission’ starring Benjamin Bratt on Thursday, April 9th at an undisclosed theater in Manhattan, NY.
Synopsis: ‘La Mission’ is the story of Che Rivera (BENJAMIN BRATT), a San Francisco bus driver respected in his Mission district barrio for building beautiful low rider cars, yet feared for his tough and machismo ways. A reformed inmate and recovering alcoholic, Che’s path to redemption is tested when he discovers that his pride and joy– his only child, Jesse (JEREMY RAY VALDEZ)– is gay. In a homophobic rage, Che violently beats his son, disowning him. Out of pride, Che loses his son – the “best friend he’s got” – and once again loses himself. Emotionally broken and vulnerable, Che is left isolated and alone. In a cathartic moment on the mean streets of the Mission, Che realizes that his patriarchal pride is meaningless to him, and that in order to maintain it, he has sacrificed the one thing that he cherishes most – love.
