Amazon has acquired “Cry Now,” a lyrical love story steeped in Chicano rockabilly culture which mark the feature debut of Alberto Barboza a consulting producer and dialogue coach on five-time Daytime Emmy nominated Hulu series “East Lost High.”

The Amazon acquisition, made via Princ Films, is for all platforms, including Amazon Prime and Amazon Instant Video.

An ode to Los Angeles street art scene, “Cry Now” stars Miguel Angel Caballero as Vincent, a street poster artist, who falls head over heels for a muse Luzy, played by Illiana Carter (“Walkout,’ “Primo”), a tattoo designer he meets at a backstreet boogey. But Sofia (Mina Olivera, “Shrink”), Vincent’s ex-girlfriend, is not ready to let go and engineers revenge. Accused of vandalism, Vincent takes off, with the Lapd in hot pursuit.

In “Cry Now,” “we follow our protagonist from one vibrant Los Angeles subculture to another,” said Barboza, who was born and bred in South Gate. »
