In Barrio Hollywood, a tense family drama, a young Mexican-American boxer dreams of fighting his way out of his family's economic plight in his barrio neighborhood. His sister, a passionate ballet folklórico dancer and dedicated cultural artist, dreams of owning her own dance studio to pass her Mexican traditions on to another generation. Their flamboyant mother dreams of taking her poker winnings and going on an extended vacation to the Canary Islands. The family's dreams are deferred when the young boxer sustains a brutal head injury in the boxing ring. As her brother's condition worsens, and as she falls unexpectedly in love with a white doctor from out-of-state, the dancer and her family learn how far they are willing to go in the name of love.
