Full Moon Nights is a LatinX, urban comedy and homage to the city of Miami. An EDM centered Dazed and Confused for the new millennium, with the drugged out observations of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. A humorous exploration of friends, drugs, dance music and the lust bred between young hearts that are free. A culmination of incidents averaged out to the sum of a typical weekend in Miami. A peephole into the world of underground electronic dance music and a celebration of a not so legal event whose memory is in danger of being buried underneath the condos that now occupy its former location.
