Synopsis
Leo Machuchal is a sad and lonely man. His mother is dying in the hospital; he works as a super in a grimy building; he gets no respect from his neighbors, the local domino players, or even the corner drug dealers. At 70 years old, his life feels pointless. All of this changes when the Congressman of El Barrio (East Harlem) dies unexpectedly, and a series of accidents propel Leo into the forefront of a hotly contested campaign. Despite his rough edges (How do you feel about drug dealers? Shoot 'em. Taxes? I don't pay 'em. The homeless? They're not homeless, they're bums!), the irascible Leo becomes the favorite son of El Barrio!
