Synopsis

Rodrigo Triana, winner of the 23rd Chicago Latino Film Festival’s Audience Choice Award in 2007 for his comedy “A Ton of Luck” returns with this hilarious satire of such reality talent shows as “The Voice” and “American Idol.” Born with a silver spoon, Camilo discovers his passion for singing and pop music while studying abroad. It will be hard to convince his family that he wants to pursue a career in the music industry, though. So, he and a friend concoct a scheme: in order to audition in Colombia’s most popular talent reality show, Camilo will pretend to be blind and poor and hire a humble and charming family to pass off as his own family. But life is not a reality show.

Rodrigo Triana, ganador del Premio del Público en la edición número 23 del Festival de Cine Latino de Chicago en 2007 por su comedia “Soñar no cuesta nada,” regresa con esta graciosísima sátira de “realities” de talento como “The Voice” y “American Idol”. Hijo de familia privilegiada, Camilo descubre su pasión por el canto y la música pop mientras estudia en el extranjero. Sin embargo, sabe que será difícil convencer a su familia de que quiere seguir una carrera en la industria musical. A él y a un amigo se les ocurre un plan: para audicionar en el reality de talentos más popular de Colombia, Camilo fingirá ser ciego y pobre y para ello contratará a una familia humilde y encantadora para hacerla pasar como propia. Pero la vida no es un reality.
