Trying to make a name for themselves in the city’s competitive fashion scene, Ben Epstein and his friend and business partner Cam Calderon use their street knowledge and connections to make their way up. With the help of their well-connected friend Domingo and Cam’s cousin Rene, who was ambitions of his own — a new energy drink called Rasta-Monsta — the burgeoning entrepreneurs set out to make it big.”
