Lou Diamond Phillips stars as Richie Valens in this musical biography of the Mexican-American boy who became a star at the age of 17. Beginning as a labourer in the plantations of rural California, Valens success was such that he would eventually undertake a triumphant tour with the legendary Buddy Holly. The film traces his rise to stardom, his relationship with his girlfriend Donna, and culminates with the tragic plane crash which killed him in 1959.
