A young Mexican woman
crosses the border into LA to join her sister, who works as a janitor in
some of the city's largest corporate offices. Surrounded by the machinations
of big business, the sisters seek happiness on a smaller but more human
scale as they try to organize a janitorial union. A chance meeting with
a passionate American activist leads to a guerilla campaign against their
employers. The fight threatens their livelihood, family, and risks their
expulsion from the country.
It's only a small cameo.
Tim Roth, Oded Fehr and Ron Perlman turn up (presumably as themselves)
as extras in a party scene in an entertainment law office.
Pilar Padilla, Adrien
Brody, Elpidia Carillo, George Lopez et al.
