After a run-in with local thugs, aspiring Harlem rapper Rob (Omarion Grandberry
) flees to a place and father (Giancarlo Esposito
) he never knew, and finds his salvation in Reggaeton, a spicy blend of hip-hop, reggae and Latin beats.
Puerto Rico, the spiritual home of Reggaeton, inspires Rob and his half-brother Javi (Victor Rasuk) to pursue their dream of becoming Reggaeton stars.
Together with a dancer named C.C., they learn what it means to stay true to themselves and each other, while overcoming obstacles in love, greed and pride, all culminating in an explosive performance at New York's Puerto Rican Day Parade.
