GENRE: Drama

A Hispanic high school soccer star moonlights as a notorious drug distributor in southern California.


Juan Carlos “JC” Duran has nearly every university after him for his prowess on the soccer field but no one has been there for him at home. Unbeknownst to his girlfriend Emma, best friend Manuel, and everyone else that he is close with, JC is the main distributor for notorious Mexican drug lord Dante Rubio.

When DEA agent Sam Kennedy is assigned the case to stop Dante’s infamous operation, his first order of business is to identify the main distributor in hopes of building a solid case against him.

Through it all, JC must decide if college and his girlfriend are more important than street money and his heritage that his best friend won’t let him leave behind.

La Buena Vida is about choice. It encompasses making the right choice for no one else but yourself. Its high school, its race, its peer pressure, it’s the real world of drugs, and it’s all to have the good life. La Buena Vida is NARCOS meets THE O.C.
