Produced by Abigal Jean-Baptiste from self-submitted fan testimonials

Guap (TV Pilot, 2017)

When Pedro, an unsuccessful drug dealer, is forced to use his hidden culinary talents to unite his family against the gentrification threatening their humble Washington Heights neighborhood, he has to make a decision about what matters most to him in order galvanize his community.
