Money, money, a rich man's world.

The rich and the poor may share a neighborhood, but the invisible wall that separates them seems insurmountable. Yet, Matias and his friends find a way inside by breaking into a local mansion, "Los Ricos". Used to hardships and evictions, this mansion and its comforts are heaven to the boys. However, what starts as innocent fun, could have disastrous consequences. These kids may not be rich in stature, but their intellect, spirit, passion, and talent, make up for it. For what they ultimately seek, is not out of grasp. They have what it takes; they just have to recognize it. Told through the eyes of amazing Latino and Afro-Latino Kids, this film takes a heart-felt look at modern day economic disparity, its challenges, and its opportunities. - Shwetha VR
