Victor, a twelve year-old boy growing up on New York City's Lower East Side experiences what growing up is all about.
Born in Brooklyn in 1976, writer-director Peter Sollett studied film at New York University. He won the Best Short Film Prize at both the Sundance and Cannes Film Festivals in 2000 for "Five Feet High and Rising". It would be the inspiration for his feature film debut "Raising Victor Vargas", a charming coming-of-age comedy set on the Lower East Side of New York City.
