Drama je iskreno in šaljivo potovanje iz New Yorka proti Hollywoodu v Kaliforniji. Sebi je mlad italijanski priseljenec, preprost, a skrivnosten pesnik, ki se po smrti matere odloči slediti skupini prijateljev v Los Angeles. Vendar je značaj mladega pesnika iz New Yorka popolnoma drugačen in nepripravljen na življenje v Los Angelesu. Tako Sebi skozi številne pustolovščine išče svojo identiteto in prostor, ki mu bo lahko rekel dom.
West of Brooklyn takes us on a heartfelt and often humorous journey from Brooklyn, New York to Hollywood, California. "Sebi" is a young Italian American man, a simple street kid and a secret beat poet, who after the death of his mother escapes Brooklyn to join his crew of friends who recently relocated to L.A. These colorful characters from New York are truly fish out of water in L.A. and Sebi longs to find a place he can feel at home. Sebi's friends, a beautiful rich girl from Beverly Hills named "Matty", and his idol, a famous Bronx poet named "Gaetano D'Amico" bring Sebi face to face with his identity and help him find the courage to be exactly who he was all along.
