A 24 hour period in the lives of Fausto and Jesús, two illegal Mexican daylabourers in LA. Each day another task, each day the same pressure to find money. They go about their daily routine, standing on the corner of the Home Improvment Store, waiting for work to come. Today, the job they are given is well paid compared to their poor usual wages. Today, Jesús carries a shotgun inside his backpack.
