An Italian-American and a Mexican illegal immigrant form an unlikely friendship in Queens, New York. Bruno is lazy, out of work and late with his rent. When an opportunity for work comes along Bruno is hesitant because it involves hiring undocumented day laborers on street corners. He is convinced it is not safe and sure enough the first guy he hires is Diego, a fast talking hustler who could be dangerous. It's not until Bruno hires Ignacio and meets his wife Gabriela that his attitude changes despite language barriers and racial prejudices.
