Through the Eye of the Needle Synopsis:
Carlos, a Salvadoran war orphan, escapes to the USA in search of a better life. Forced to join an LA gang in order to survive, his dreams of a better life quickly deteriorate… “Why fall in love with life, if we all marry death in the end? ” In a twist of fate, Carlos is re-united with his father, a rich North American textile mogul, who suddenly dies of cancer, leaving Carlos the company and the entire family fortune. Armed with money and power, Carlos finds himself thrust into a world of corporate greed and deception, and it isn’t long before his gang past catches up with him. But it isn’t until he finds out he is a father himself and sees his daughter for the first time that Carlos finally realizes: “Life is only worth living, when you live it for someone else.”
“Through the Eye of the Needle” (TEN) was inspired by the common threads that link the U.S. and Salvadoran history together. Violence breeds violence, hate breeds hate, and the Salvadoran civil war was no exception. Some of the common social problems facing both countries today, from immigration, drugs and gang violence, to sweatshops, famine and poverty, are a direct result of the U.S. involvement in the Salvadoran civil war in the 1980’s. “Through the Eye of the Needle” can, in some ways, be thought of as a visual representation of U.S. foreign policy, and its ramifications around the globe. From all over the world, the stories of most immigrants to the USA share common threads; the pursuit of the ‘American Dream’… Ironically, most people who are fleeing to the USA, are from countries hampered by war tied to the USA to begin with.
