synopsis

Enrique Heredia, alias El Cuajo, a streetwise gypsy-like chancer with cerebral palsy who has difficulty walking, convinces Adolfo to open a music studio to make money with the talent and passion that the two share: Hip Hop. His friend Adolfo is a mixed-race youth who lives in a working class suburb on the outskirts of Madrid with an alcoholic father and health problems. Other youths of diverse backgrounds and cultures, who share the outcast environment, will take part in what for Cuajo is his ultimate adolescent dream.
