En español | In the new film Gun Hill Road, Esai Morales plays a convict who, after three years in jail, returns to his Bronx home and finds that his wife (Judy Reyes) is emotionally distant and his teenage son (newcomer Harmony Santana) leads a secret life: He's a transvestite who performs at a local club, is coming out as a gay man and ultimately wants to have a sex-change operation. Morales's character tries to interest his son in sports and takes him to a hooker to lose his virginity, all to no avail.
