|When Lucia, a young Mexican born novelist, begins her dream career as a television writer in L.A, she finds herself much more comfortable with the only other Latino around, one of the janitors, than with anyone in the writers’ room. This new comic-drama by Tanya Saracho, a writer for HBO’s Girls and ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder, poses tricky questions about identity and community, as Lucia struggles to bridge the distance between where she came from and where she’s going. Contains profane language, mature themes and sexual humor. Recommended for people High School age and up.|

An insecure Latina writer joins a TV Series writing team and struggles being accepted. A Hispanic janitor befriends her and helps her gain traction in the vitriolic environment. But his friendship and the background stories they yield are too tempting not to incorporate into her "pitches" to her boss. She proves her worth to her boss - but at what price?
