Young latino boy becoming a musician in a bad neighborhood somewhere in the US ( falling in love with beautiful latina )

Movie about a young adult with a guitar who tries to become a musician in a poor neighborhood. He lives in a small house with his parents ( and his brother I think ) but they are always fighting and arguing. At some point he falls in love with a beautiful latina girl. In one scene he is singing while playing the guitar, when he does this he sits on the edge of a fountain ( maybe that is where he meets the girl I'm not sure)

Also, he does some criminal stuff and I remember that he has to watch a (stolen?) van parked at some garage of petrol station. Later he gets a pair of fancy sneakers from someone but then a group of guys kicks his ass to steal the sneakers ( at a train station possibly ).

I don't know how the story ends but i am pretty sure the main goal of the couple is to leave the city together in search for a better life. I watched this movie back in 2010 ( it might be connected to the sundance film festival)
