Frustrated with the lack of "good" parts for Latina women - her Mother (Lisa Velez-Mello) tries to help and points out an open call audition for a popular TV series "Crime Law and Justice", only the open call is solely looking for Latino Men. So, with the help of her crazy make-up artist cousin, Sonia Cruz (Sofia Rodriguez), she decides to take matters into her own hands and audition for the part as a MAN!
