Blast Beat is a coming-of-age drama with some comedy thrown in the mix set in the year 2000 about CARLY and MATEO. Carly is a tougher-than-nails 17-year-old dude who's passionate about metal music; it's his escape, his ritual, and his definition. His 15-year-old rival brother, Mateo, is more of a free spirited, sensitive, and artistic soul. The brothers and their family are Colombian undocumented immigrants who have been living in the U.S. for only a year and are in the middle of a difficult and painful cultural transition. Nelly, The boys' mother, is having an affair with a man they know from church, and what's even worse their role-model father, Ernesto, has been suddenly picked up by the Immigration Police and is getting deported!
