It2s within this precarious ecosystem that twelve-year-old Ale must grow up fast, hustling in the neighborhood chop shops to build a more stable life for himself and his sister even as their tenuous circumstances force each to compete with other struggling people and make desperate decisions.

In 'Chop Shop' you get to see a glimpse of the world's largest economy that you would only associate with a third-world country, such as one in Latin America. The boy actor did an excellent job playing his role. There isn't much of a story but you get to follow the life of this street boy, and his sister, as they deal with life and pursue their own dreams.

Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one.

Bittersweet but amazingly realistic film. Superb acting by Alejandro Polanco.
