  • Un film de Yanillys Perez

Laveur de voiture par nécessité, chanteur de reggaeton par passion, Jeffrey, 12 ans, rêve de devenir célèbre et de réussir sa vie. Il écrit des chansons sur son quartier, ses amis et sa vie. L’une d’elles, Los Tres Brazos, va l’envoyer sur les plateaux de télé. On le surnomme désormais "Jeffrey le cauchemar".

This feature documentary focuses on a 12-year-old street windshield washer in Santo Domingo who yearns to become a reguetón singer, and with the help of his older brother composes and records songs about his life, his neighbourhood, and his dreams for the future. Twelve-year-old Jeffrey has the responsibilities of an adult, working as a windshield washer on the busy streets of Santo Domingo to help his mom make ends meet at home. But he has big plans to become a reggaeton singer. In collaboration with his older brother Jeyson, he composes and records songs about his neighbourhood, his way of life, and his dreams for the future.
In this documentary film, director Yanillys Perez highlights the resilience and dynamism of his subject. We watch as Jeffrey looks for customers, tries to avoid turf wars with other windshield washers, spends time at home with his family, and climbs his special tree - a tree to which he often speaks of his hopes for a better life. Jeffrey captures a real-life story of a boy trying his best to turn his dreams into reality.
