Elliott Turner discusses and signs The Night of the Virgin

When Manny Hernandez turned eighteen, he left behind the desperately poor Rio Grande Valley with one goal in mind: become a professional soccer player. He stumbled a few times, but found plenty of adventure along the way as he and his best friend Hector traveled across Texas and the West Coast. Still, what happened on the field isn't even half the story.  A pulsating and raw look at the Mexican-American community's struggles with poverty, alcoholism, infidelity, and heterosexism. A thoughtful reflection on a brash young man who grew into a loving father. An indisputably American tale where a dream lead to a journey that twisted when you wanted it to turn. The Night of the Virgin is a story about those slippery topics of identity and acceptance, hatred and love. (Round Ball Media)
