It is summer in Ocean City, New Jersey. Two brothers, Sam and Burt Martinez, play and are ready to fight on the beach. They are from El Salvador, Central America from a lower class family. Sam is five years old, shorter. Burt is six years old, bigger and in an aggressive-control forward stand.
No treasure. They are fighting for someone buried in the sand. Even alive!
Burt forgets about the fight digs the person out of the sand. Sam looks on. Out of the hole pops their baby brother, Joseph. “You hurt me.”
He then throws sand at Burt and Sam. Burt and Sam run away.
Joseph chases them and throws sand.
Down the beach empowered with harmony
The brothers are out laughing.
