Los Angeles gang member Pedro Mata has two violent felonies on his criminal record. If he commits a third one, he’ll receive a life sentence. Statistically, Pedro’s chances of remaining free are less than one in four. But he vows to stay out of prison and joins a wildland firefighter training program.
As the filmmaker follows Pedro for a year, the camera becomes a mirror in which Pedro seeks who he might truly be.
Una Chanza Más is the intimate portrait of a man undergoing an extraordinary identity crisis. Pedro has a burning desire to change but his past haunts him. Will he be able to completely let go of who he was in order to reinvent himself?
