At school, Jordin is a cocky but charming Latino firebrand; at home he is a doting grandson who can't seem to please his perpetually cranky father. On the day he's suspended for insulting a teacher, Jordin meets Felipa, a bookish, no-nonsense New York girl who sees past his swaggering facade.

The two immediately embark on an unlikely friendship that inspires Jordin to find out who he really is. Shot in Echo Park near downtown Los Angeles, this is a beguiling coming-of-age romance introducing two phenomenal young actors in the leads.
