Gritty thriller following 24 fateful hours in the lives of two illegal Mexican workers in Los Angeles. Fausto (Rubén Sosa) and Jesus (Jesus Moises Rodriguez) live below the radar, hanging around a street corner and picking up whatever cash-in-hand jobs they can. On this particular day they are offered an unusually well-paying job; one that will see their lives intersect with the very different existence of American mother Karen (Nina Zavarin). Karen is relatively well-off but seems unhappy and frustrated. She has a poor relationship with her son and argues with him that day, leading him to leave her alone in the house. When confronted with Fausto and Jesus, Karen finds herself facing a more immediate problem and will have to cross cultural and class barriers if she hopes to resolve it.
