The Rodriguez family is living in New York City’s El Barrio in the early 1970s, when music was a proud expression of Latino culture amidst neighborhood volatility and social activism. The story centers on patriarch Don Roberto, who tries to instill good values in his children, and faces down the grit and chaos of the era. He works hard to hold his family together, and all the while music and imagination keep their souls afloat. Featuring classic songs by Tito Puente, Eddie Palmieri, Willie Colón, Héctor Lavoe, Rubén Blades, Johnny Pacheco, Pete El Conde, La Lupe, and others. Mostly in Spanish with English supertitles.
