Synopsis

Over a long, hot summer, teenage Victor is enjoying his adolescence on the streets of New York’s Lower East Side. Even though he is very poor and lives at home with his younger brother, sister and grandmother, he still imagines himself to be the greatest ladies’ man his neighbourhood has ever seen. However, when word gets out that he’s sleeping with an overweight, unpopular girl living two floors above him, he suddenly finds himself in danger of becoming the laughing stock of the neighbourhood. But life has more surprises in store... An honest independent film about first love, coming of age, and the Hispanic community in New York.
