After the gangsters who killed his father
come to settle a score, a teenage boy and his mother turn
the tables on the killers. Producer John Singleton (Four
Brothers, Hustle & Flow) and writer/director Franc. Reyes
(Empire) join forces to tell the story of one Latino
family's quest for honor and revenge as the hunted become
the hunters in the new thriller Illegal Tender.
Wilson De Leon, Jr. (Rick Gonzalez) is an exceptional
college student with an adoring girlfriend, doting mother
and a future full of promise. He has never wanted for
anything, and he has never been forced to stand his ground.
But when ghosts from his mother's past come back to haunt
his present, he must defend his family...and quickly turn
into the strong man his father prayed he'd become.
Nothing could stop Wilson's mother, Millie (Wanda De Jesús),
from protecting her two boys. Forced to flee her home after
gangsters killed her husband, she made an oath to give her
children only the best. But all that changes when an enemy
from the past catches up with them. It's finally time to
take action--and now, they're done running.
Weapons at the ready, Wilson, Jr. and Millie prepare for a
final showdown with the murderer who robbed him of a father
and her of a husband. Now, in a battle fueled by family ties
and blood feuds, it will become very clear what happens when
anyone tries to come between this son and his mother.
