Unfolding in three chapters of rare intimacy and candour, Tres Pesos offers an insight into the everyday lives of young Cuban reggaeton musicians.

Living in the neglected outskirts of Havana, the musicians who rap and jam together share a relentless hunger for success despite the poverty of their daily existence. Tres Pesos reveals young people whose survival depends on music, offering the only way out for themselves and their families.
