In 1973 L.A., a spirited Chicano family rock band is discovered by an ambitious record exec. Catapulted on a rollercoaster journey from the barrios to pop stardom, they must rely upon their heart, talent, and street smarts if they’re to survive the prevalent racism, intolerance, sexual predation, and vicious gang crime of that era.
Esperanza presents an alternate rock-music history as a unique period-piece, urban fiction that focuses on the rise of a Los-Angeles-based, Mexican American family rock band in the ’70s.
