Description: Daddy Yankee, stars as Edgar Dinero, a misunderstood product of the slums of Puerto Rico who becomes torn between the street life of his childhood neighborhood and his ambition to become something more. Entangled within the strong ties of a violent barrio underworld, "Dinero" falls for a girl who brings positivity to his life. He then decides to conceal his connection to the hood from her. Soon, Edgar has the opportunity to make a run for it, but he fears he will never be able to hide from the scores of corrupt cops or shake the full-blown turf war that consumes his crew. "Dinero" is asked the ultimate question: Will he succumb to the violence of the barrio, or will he listen to the beat of his heart and fulfill his goal of becoming a star in his own right?
