Storyboard Text

  • EL Cristo Rey
  • Acaponeta
  • Nogales
  • EL Cristo Rey is where Victor got the money priest to go to El Norte and that is the same way that his father got money and he took it as a sign. Victor thought that this was a sign to go to EL Norte because he wanted to but he had no money and the priest gave him money. After he got the money he went back and told his mother that he was going to EL Norte.
  • The Mountains
  • Acaponeta is where victor jumped off of a moving train and split open his head and had to go to the hospital to fix it. This is also where Victor met Julio. They both went onto the train and took a car and stayed in there with air conditioning. This train is how Victor got to Nogales. There were cops at the station that the train was stopping at so everybody jumped off.
  • Nogales
  • Nogales is the border town where Julio leaves Victor and Victor finds Miguel again. Julio went through a flooded tunnel with an intertube and Victor never found out what happened to him, if he made it or not. Regardless Victor found Miguel again and followed him and went with him crossing the border. This is one of the most important city because it is where he met Miguel and went with him to go across the border.
  • Dayton Washington
  • Guadalupe, Peloncillo, San Bernadino valley, Which is where Miguel is captured by the border patrol and where he gives Victor his lighter and pocket knife. Miguel and Victor were running away from the border patrol and Miguel said that he wouldn't be able to escape and that he's not fast enough so he gave Victor everything that he had in order to cross the border.
  • After Victor gets deported, he meets up with Rico and they tell each other their stories. Victor met Rico at the Soup Kitchen and Rico bought them both a banana split which i thought was a waste of money. Victor and Rico exchanged stories and how they both got deported to Nogales. Rico's story was way more dangerous than Victor's because Rico got shot at and jumped out of a moving car.
  • This is where Victor lives and is working when Rico says that he misses his family and that he is going to go back to live with his sister in Silao. Victor was making $60 an hour and Rico was making $40 an hour because he doesn't like field work and he's not very good at it because he is lazy. Victor sent home his money to his family and Rico went back to his family in SIlao.
