In a “melting pot” neighborhood in Hell’s Kitchen, José Rodriguez, an undocumented Mexican delivery guy, has an American Dream – to become “a someone.” Alina Orlova, a beautiful but inept Russian spy, also has an American Dream – to save the family’s “Fluff N’ Fold!” Speeding though one preposterous and hilarious plot twist after another, Jose and Alina embark on a wild adventure to fulfill their destinies.
