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.
