"I had a friend once who made us all feel taller. 

He was no better or worse than any of us, 

but the way he lived showed us that 

we were not the weak little kids we’d always been told. 

He made us stand up. He made us into better people. 

He’s dead now, somewhere out in those old sugar fields. - JUAN CORAZON - "SUGARFIELDS"

At the dawn of the 90's

Puerto Rico was the face of tropical life in the USA, on the surface the picture perfect locale, sun kissed beaches and postcard people were the beginning and end of the island getaway. But the truth is a lot darker. As the physical gateway into the United States, Puerto Rico suffers from a great plague, a plague of men that seek to exploit its produce, its position, its politics. One such cartel is that of dope and coke. The controlling order of the illicit empire of drug trafficking eliminates any and all who interfere, and for the largest drugs market in the world few would stand in the way.

Few men are that of this family line, that of embattled drug-dealer Juan Corazon (Jerry Avilés). The Heart. The beating center of our shrinking, silent cries for freedom. They have a generational tendency for truth, regardless of the guise it comes in.

A classic story

of murder, betrayal, secrets and revelations. Where generations are interlinked like the coral reef chains under deep water cliff edges surrounding the island. Inspired by true stories and revelations about the complicit factions of dark organizationalism an corruption within FBI and police forces throughout the Caribbean, combined with governmental desire for increased revenue, SUGARFIELDS is a story that restates the lines of understood reality.

Starring J.W. Cortés of the hit series Gotham and featuring two-time winner of Dancing with the Stars USAAnna DemidovaJulian Ernesto Figueroa of the cult Latin hit 200 Cartasand David Davila Pagan, featured in the Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake film Runner, Runner.
