His name is then changed into “Smiley.” Casper’s and Smiley’s journey in the Mara starts off very soon, they were sent by their commanders in search of opposing gang members and ordered to get rid of them. In the other hand, Sayra, the young protagonist from Honduras, encounters her estranged father and uncle to engage on a life-changing journey to the United States as illegal immigrants. The story’s excitement begins when both protagonists meet as Casper tries to escape his doomed fate while Sayra tries to reach her fate, the “American dream.” The movie emphasizes aspects not yet discussed in our course, but still deals with immigration, poverty, and gangs as important concerns to governments and citizens of third world countries. "Sin Nombre" is one of the most powerful foreign films that I’ve seen lately.

The concept in this novel is extremely intriguing to an American reader because we are currently facing a time period were we have been attacked by terrorist in our generation.

At the age of only thirteen and being small for his age he is taken by his native land authority due to his intelligence.

After fooling the group into believing he is also a victim, he becomes addicted to all kinds of support groups when he realises it cures his insomnia temporarily. During the course of the story the narrator meets a man named Tyler Durden and moves in with him when his apartment is blown up in a gas explosion. The narrator stops going to the support meetings and the two men start ‘fight club’, where men come to fight each other and escape their normal lives. Tyler quickly becomes the leader of fight club and turns it into an anti-consumerist, anti-corporate terrorist organisation known as ‘Project Mayhem’. My favourite quote from the novel deals with the running theme of consumerism: “It’s only after you’ve lost everything,” Tyler says, “that you’re free to do anything.” Normally the term ‘losing everything’ would obviously carry with it negative connotations but Tyler means that when a person rids themselves of all their material possessions it is only then that they are truly free.

This line of thinking is passed onto Robert and likely has an effect on the reasoning behind the actions of Robert in the later parts of the book. Even after Ivan and his friends call Nelson a “stinking chocolate face”, “terrorist” and an “effing gook”, Nelson believes that they are only doing this because “the war only ended three years ago” “and it can take time to forget”. When Ivan and his gang throw Nelson into the pit and throw the scorpions onto him, although Robert does not full take part in the bullying, he is a bystander
