But after promising his entire family that the 80 year old Latin music will finally get a world premiere, is he in over his head?
Generation Wolf, USA
Vincent took the risk to found his own company, Del Toro Green Motors, in sunny California. His company specializes in refurbishing vintage cars and converting them into electric cars. When a problem arises with the licensing bureau, Vincent is suddenly blocked from selling his cars, jeopardizing his business. In order to save his dream and his father’s house from bank repossession, Vincent finds himself tempted into other means of earning money. As Vincent falls deeper into the world of crime, he soon realizes his situation grows more brutal and dangerous than he ever imagined.
