Mexican American is a 2007 crime drama film set in Los Angeles. It stars Damian Chapa, Roberto Pulido, Marian Zapico, and Rachel Hunter. The film follows the story of a young street thug named Jesse who gets entangled in the world of drug trafficking and gang violence, but ultimately finds redemption through love and family. Jesse is a Mexican-American teenager who lives in East LA with his mother and younger brother. He is a tough, streetwise kid who is always getting into trouble with the law. However, he has a talent for boxing and dreams of making it big as a professional fighter.

One day, Jesse's life takes a dark turn when he gets involved with a local drug dealer named Hector. Hector sees potential in Jesse and offers him a job as a drug courier. At first, Jesse is hesitant to get involved in the drug trade, but he soon realizes that it is an easy way to make money.

Jesse gets deeper and deeper into the drug trade, and he soon becomes a key player in Hector's organization. He starts to enjoy the money and power that come with the job, but he also becomes increasingly paranoid and violent. He starts to see enemies everywhere and becomes obsessed with protecting his territory.

Meanwhile, Jesse meets a beautiful woman named Sarina, who works as a waitress at a local diner. Sarina is different from the other women that Jesse has been with, and he soon falls in love with her. Sarina also has a troubled past, and she understands what it is like to live in a world of crime and violence.

As Jesse's involvement in the drug trade intensifies, he begins to lose his grip on reality. He becomes increasingly paranoid and violent, and he starts to alienate the people around him. He even starts to turn on Hector, his former mentor and employer.

In the end, Jesse's obsession with power and violence leads him to a tragic end. However, his love for Sarina and his family ultimately save him from himself. Mexican American is a gritty and realistic portrayal of the dark side of the American dream, and it is a must-see for fans of crime dramas.
