Summary:
A young Mexican woman crosses the border into LA to join her sister, who works as a janitor in some of the city's largest corporate offices. Surrounded by the machinations of big business, the sisters seek happiness on a smaller but more human scale as they try to organize a janitorial union. A chance meeting with a passionate American activist leads to a guerilla campaign against their employers. The fight threatens their livelihood, family, and risks their expulsion from the country.
