Carlos is just like any other young man in his twenties: he wants a chance to make his own way in the world, and define himself on his own terms. For years, Carlos has felt like he doesn’t quite fit: he was too smart for school, never made the right jokes, and had a hard time switching gears and changing routine. Still, he made the best of it and has a tight-knit group of friends in his neighbourhood who look out for him. For this reason, he decided to stay in Tecugigalpa when his family left Honduras. And for a while, it seemed like that was the right choice: Carlos met his girlfriend, and helps her study at night and on weekends for her programming certification. But now they’re in trouble: his girlfriend is pregnant, and Honduras’ laws make it almost impossible for them to do anything but keep the baby. Now Carlos is wondering if it’s worth it to uproot himself, his girlfriend, and his child to join his family in another country. Travel is expensive, and Carlos has no job. A friend suggests he finally get off the fence and involve himself fully in a gang, where he could make money helping to smuggle drugs or standing lookout during other jobs. Should he stay or should he go?
