The Syracuse-made comedy, "Sushi Tushi" premiered last Friday at the Palace Theater. Brandon Villalobos, who landed the leading role, came back to Syracuse for the premiere and shared his journey to the big screen.
Before landing the role, Brandon and his family were homeless. He would send all the paychecks from the film back to his mother. Since the creation of the film Brandon and his family have been doing much better. They are no longer homeless and Brandon has been offered multiple acting roles. He wants to inspire others with his story, he says, "If you love something, do it. You're never too late to start your dream, and you're never in a wrong spot to start your dream."
