Jay is a young and gifted Latino filled with dreams and ambition. His passion for music and hunger for life drive him to want more, but there are forces seemingly conspiring to hold him back -- namely, his friends and his surroundings. With the help of his new girlfriend, and on the brink of letting his life take an irreversible turn, he comes to see a new direction and new possibilities. A story of the profound changes that occur when a young musician awakens to the magic, the music and the romance of the world outside the poverty and violence that are his life in the Bronx.
Flaco Navaja, one of the actors in the movie who hails from the Bronx, says he is proud of the movie.
At his Facebook site, he writes "check out this awesome film i'm in!!!"
