These different bands of disaffected youth refer to themselves as Kolombianos, combining the Cholo culture with Colombian music. Ulises Samperio (17), the leader of Los Terkos, tries to protect his friends from the nefarious elements of a quickly evolving drug/political war, but after a misunderstanding with a local cartel, he is forced to leave for Jackson Heights, Queens, a diverse immigrant community in New York City. Ulises tries to assimilate, but when he learns that his gang and the whole Kolombia culture is under threat, he questions his place in America and longs to return home.
Plot: In Monterrey, Mexico, a young street gang spends their days dancing to slowed-down cumbia and attending parties. After a mix-up with a local cartel, their leader is forced to migrate to the U.S. but quickly longs to return home.

Stranger in a Strange Town…
… even one called home; life in Monterrey becomes untenable for a young gang lead, stranded in deep water, unable to fight the tide, washed up in New York where the currents repel – all played out to an original soundtrack of Cumbia Rebajada and the passion for expression, identity and dance.
A true gem
At first i was sceptical, – just another coming of age flick – but from some “far away” place? I am happy to say i was totally wrong. And while speaking of happy: the music! I am hooked. I was so satisfied when the music, which is a central element of this film, turned out to be something uniquely different and not just some popular garbage. Anyways: this is not your run of the mill teen drama. The movie has it’s own angle at a very complex and difficult reality, all sewn together by one strong belief – which is convincingly believable due to the protagonists age. And belief it may be, faith even, that makes this story so unique. And i am absolutely not a religious person. Fernando Frías is straight on the way to the Academy Awards if he continues this path. And i hope he digs up an even bigger diamond. Thank you!
