Four young Latino men have a chance meeting at Burrito World in Omaha and discover they share the same name and a common dream: to stage a show of Latin standards that puts forth a positive image to counteract Latino stereotypes. Enter Maria, a beautiful woman who provides a romantic interest as the gentlemen vie for her attention. Performed in Spanish and English, the show features some of the most evocative Latin music ever written, sung in four and five-part harmony.
