Rudy Mancuso, a charismatic but directionless young street performer from Newark’s Ironbound neighborhood, has a unique view of the world. Thanks to a rare condition called synesthesia, he experiences everyday noises – from car horns to water droplets to doors slamming – as a series of complex rhythms. He struggles to keep the music in his head at bay, but it’s not so easily accomplished.

When he’s not taking classes to finish his college degree or staging puppet performances for commuters on the streets of the Ironbound’s close-knit Brazilian community, Rudy is trying to convince his girlfriend, Haley (Francesca Reale), that he will eventually figure things out. He lives with his mother, Maria (played by the actor’s real-life mother, Maria Mancuso), who wants her son to dump Haley and settle down with a nice Brazilian girl from the neighborhood. Rudy also gets advice on life and love from his best friend, Anwar (comedian J.B. Smoove), a food truck operator whose cultural identity morphs based on where his truck is parked on any given day.

Matters take a turn for the chaotic when Rudy is literally knocked out by a flying piece of frozen fish. The accident leads to an encounter with Isabella (Camila Mendes), a beautiful young Brazilian woman who works in the local fish market and who may understand Rudy in ways nobody else ever has. Caught in a love triangle, Rudy tries to balance his cultural heritage, the women in his life and the música inside his head.

An untraditional romantic comedy that moves to its own infectious beat, Música stars online sensation Rudy Mancuso, who based the film on his own experiences and also serves as the film’s director, co-writer, composer and choreographer. 

Música is directed by Rudy Mancuso (“Tempo,” “Stories From Our Future”) from a script by Mancuso and Dan Lagana (“American Vandal,” The Babysitter: Killer Queen).

Smoove (“Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Spider-Man: Far From Home) and Rudy Mancuso (Rim of the World, The Flash). Producers are McG (“Supernatural,” “Chuck”) and Mary Viola (The Babysitter, Love Hard). Executive producers are Camila Mendes, Bruce Wayne Gillies, Dan Lagana and Steven Bello (The DUFF, Holidate).

Costume designer is Tere Duncan (“The Walking Dead,” City Island). The film is edited by Melissa Kent (The Age of Adaline, The Dirt).

Based on one of the greatest video game series of all time, Fallout is the story of haves and have-nots in a world in which there’s almost nothing left to have. 200 years after the apocalypse, the gentle denizens of luxury fallout shelters are forced to return to the irradiated hellscape their ancestors left behind — and are shocked to discover an incredibly complex, gleefully weird and highly violent universe waiting for them.
