There are stories that could only happen in New York City. Where else would all those people get along: a Brazilian, an Iranian, two Mexican brothers, an old Korean lady and an American couple? In this anarchic comedy about clash of cultures, intolerance, romance and impossible dreams, nothing is what it seems and nobody is all good or all bad.
Full of twists, this politically incorrect story will surprise you all the way until its completely unexpected finale.
Fagner is a Brazilian young man who lives illegally in New York City. He works for Oman in his "Down by the Nile River” Deli. Oman is Iranian but he is often mistaken for any other person from the Middle East, which makes him very angry. Fagner hangs out with Rico, his best friend. Rico is a Mexican pothead and likes to brag about being brother of a drug dealer, Carlos. Oman and Rico don’t like each other. Oman complains that Rico distracts Fagner from his work. In turn, Rico thinks that Oman exploits Fagner.
But the real mess starts when Fagner falls in love with Rachel, an actress not very talented, who works at a shoe store and likes to smoke a joint. Rachel dates an Italian American immigrant inspector, Tony. He hates aliens, like Fagner, and in addition he has an aversion to immigrants like Oman and Rico.
What a jumble!
