The Pitbull-produced film is a story of friendship, loyalty and a life-changing trip to Paris. Detectives Luis Lopez and Eddie Garcias are childhood best friends, brother-in-laws, and partners in the New York Police Department Luxury Goods Recovery Unit tasked with hunting down Canal Street’s infamous bootleggers. With Luis as the slick, self-styled “brains” of the operation and Eddie as the shy, quiet “muscle,” they’ve been running through the streets of Lower East side in search of fake Louis Vuitton for 20 years — long enough for them to be the best in the business. While their work mostly keeps them below 14th Street, a random visit from a celebrated French designer and her business partner set in motion a sequence of events that take them on a wild goose chase through the streets of Paris — from fashion parties, to hipster nightclubs — in search of a stolen handbag (and delicious French-macarons)/ as the investigation deepens with no sign of the bag, out two best-friends start to grow suspicious of everyone around them — including each other. “Puerto Ricans in Paris” is a fashion whodunnit with laughs, drop-crotch pants, and a lot of heart.
