”Three hard-working, hard-partying Mexican-American cousins vie for the love of the young and beautiful Mexico City-born Rosita who visits America for this first time in this romantic comedy. The American assimilated blue-collar cousins love the charro heritage and they deal with a stern old-school grandma while they haplessly chase in song and dance - the lovely Rosita in this captivating comedy about cultural shock and family tradition.”
