A noir crime-buster.
As if ripped from today's headlines reporting evictions, fires and protests in the streets, "The Other Barrio" follows investigator Roberto Morales as he sifts through the suspicious circumstances of a fatal fire in a residential hotel in San Francisco's rapidly gentrifying Mission District and finds himself face to face with murder in the streets, corruption at City Hall and his own demons.
Adapted from a short story by San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia and set against the current epidemic of evictions and gentrification, “The Other Barrio” is a fictionalized account of true events.
This is SF Noir at its best, a tale of murder, corruption, justice and greed. A truly complicated border war.
