Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Golden Globe-nominee Mandy Patinkin (Homeland) star in this heartfelt indie about Jorge (Octavio Gómez Berríos, Crash), a devastatingly shy dishwasher who works in a shabby Queens diner. From his kitchen corner, Jorge has eyes for Amy (Eugenia Yuan, Memoirs of a Geisha), the idealistic new waitress. Tormented by bad-boy coworker Jerry (Paul), who boldly flirts with Amy at every opportunity, Jorge worries his own insecurities will keep him from traversing the gulf between him and the object of his affection. His last chance to win Amy over is in an uncharacteristically grand gesture that may save not only an unsuspecting customer’s life, but his own as well.
