Dance, dance, dance! As the film of West Side Story shoots on their doorstep, redevelopment threatens a Puerto Rican family striving to match sky-high hopes with low-end reality. But nothing can quell the starry-eyed dreams of the Candelarias, a talented clan of hoofers determined to crash the boards of Broadway, Hollywood, and ultimately America itself. Told in exuberant dance as well as drama, it is a comic, captivating journey of the heart.
Contains occasional mature language.
“A robust, entertaining, compelling gem.” San Diego Union Tribune
