Marcos (m), 40, a struggling Cuban-American night club owner; Fernando (m), 29, Marcos’ younger brother; Matizo (m), 35, a local loan shark; Bella (f), 20-something, Marcos’ girlfriend, a dancer.
“Marcos, a second generation Cuban-American, tries desperately to hold onto what he owns, and more, while pursuing his version of the American Dream, only to unwittingly contribute to the greatest tragedy in his life during a moment of defiance."
