It is the lunchtime rush at The Grill, a New York tourist trap that serves thousands of customers on a regular Friday like today. One of the cooks is Pedro, a young Mexican who is seeking more from life than this job has to offer. He is a dreamer and a troublemaker, and he is in love with Julia, an American waitress who cannot commit to a relationship with an undocumented alien. Rashid, The Grill’s owner, has promised to help Pedro with his papers. But when Pedro is accused of stealing the money, and then discovers that Julia has had an abortion, his reaction will halt the production line at the kitchen once and for all.

At this moment, we do not have any future performances scheduled.
