Nut Grass
A story of eccentric courage. The oldest of six living children, Norman or “El Demente,” a pimp in a Juarez brothel, sets out to find MaBelle, the mother of the brood. He catches up, thumbing and riding freights, with the displaced family in California’s low desert. Instead of reaching the dreamed-of Hollywood, they find themselves bogged down in a sweltering corn harvest in the Coachella Valley.
