When there is no one to turn to at home, sometimes the only family that seems to care is the one you find on the streets. ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME is the all-too-common story of Guatemala City’s urban youth and the gangs that become their family.
Welcome to the online home of the feature documentary ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME. At its core, OGCJM will tell a story of family life in the heart of urban Guatemala City—both the dysfunctional reality of many kids and the family found on the streets. Most of the story will occur in Guatemala City’s La Limonada, the largest urban slum in Central America. It is here where poverty combines with addiction and abuse, forcing many kids to fend for themselves, often leading to a connection with gangs—the ones who help show young needy kids how to get food and clothes…and survive.
