A witty dramatic comedy about class, integrity, and culture. Lucia is understandably nervous. It’s day one at her first TV writing job. As a Hispanic novelist, she may actually be the “diversity hire” she’s heard whispers about. Uncertain whether she can make a place for herself in cutthroat Hollywood, she feels less alone when she meets Abel, the Latino janitor. They form a bond and share stories, but it turns out that their friendship is not what Abel expects.
“Saracho’s writing is so sharp, full lives take shape with an economy of words […] a powerful piece with a fresh voice and a bright future.” — Denver Post
