After a run-in with a gang, aspiring Harlem rapper Rob flees to a place and father 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 to pursue their dream of becoming Reggaeton stars. Together with a beautiful dancer named CC, they learn what it means to stay true to themselves and each other. Rob (Omarion Grandberry) wants to rap in New York but his mother worries about his survival. When he is shot at, she shoos him off to Puerto Rico to live with his father Roberto (Giancarlo Esposito). Rob, who has no idea that his dad even existed, tries to make the best of what he thinks will be marking time until it is safe to return home. His half-brother Javi, a digital music wiz and online DJ, introduces Rob to Reggaeton. They visit the clubs of Puerto Rico’s La Perla ghetto, and the music ignites Rob’s passion. Although their father, a former musician, isn’t supportive, Rob and Javi begin to make music together. Javi teaches Rob to integrate his rap into the faster rhythm of Reggaeton. They create a catchy track that Rob’s budding love interest, CC (Zulay Henao), is convinced will become a hit. Meanwhile, CC’s jealous ex-boyfriend (Vico C) emerges as a threat to the boys and their family. CC introduces the undaunted duo to a hotshot producer (James McCaffrey) who signs them to a contract. Rob, Javi and CC set off for New York to find their futures while Rob must also settle a score in his past. What at first seems the perfect homecoming for Rob -- recording in a fancy studio, staying for free in posh digs -- begins to unravel. As New York’s famous Puerto Rican Day Parade approaches, all three attempt to piece back together their dreams and self-respect before it’s too late.
