Synopsis

Pepe and Rico, Latino cousins, have embarked on a path which will tease them with success but bring them back down to a vicious reality. They love each other dearly but are constantly in conflict--stemming from their different views on life, money and the meaning of success. Pepe struggles to get out of his unpredictable and unfulfilling lifestyle by upscaling his position from gypsy-cab driver to an upstanding Town Car chauffeur. But he must first buy his own Town Car. He gets into the business of "special package deliveries" for a local gangster in order to make fast cash. Rico is a young aspiring actor struggling in an industry closed to Latinos, and finds it hard to find his identity. When he falls for Marisol, she becomes the source of needed emotional support. As Rico and Marisol's relationship intensifies, and Pepe gets closer to his goals, their worlds fall apart.
