B.O.O.S.T.                                         

"Based on a true story that is a coming of age, action-drama set in present day Texas about a working class family caught up in a dysfunctional three generational cycle of seedy traditions, and their search for a way out."

B.O.O.S.T. (running time 100 min) For generations, the Rios, a working class family in Southern Texas lead by brothers Bobby and Oscar, their best friend Octavian, uncle Santos and cousin Tino, have survived as construction workers to support their families. But a darker side to their living is the underground family business of stealing construction equipment to support their vices and financial problems, in a small town lacking opportunities. This way of living has been passed on from father to son for a third time and continues to bring on a detrimental cycle of wrong doings. This tight-knit family begins to collapse as stakes get higher and their larceny gets riskier. They are faced with consequences and begin to question their true values and whether these family habits, tolerated by their matriarch Lupe Rios, are worth the danger imposed on their children and others that depend on them.
