https://youtu.be/HYtQiKVYaqk

LOVE COMES LATER is a punk version of the immigrant story, about a woman who is forced into a life of crime in order to become American. She is forced to steal in order to get her personal belongings back but one petty theft spirals into the next – setting off a domino of violent events, ultimately causing her downfall.

LOVE COMES LATER is about the flawed idea of the “American Dream” – one that sets people up to fail regardless of how hard they try. It’s a look at how America treats immigrants and the poor, with the hope of inspiring honest, important conversations.  But at the heart of it – this is a story about love and fear: two of the most primal emotions that drive us all as human beings.
