Two of those workers, Raul and Sylvia (Wilmer Valderrama, Catalina Sandino Moreno), have crossed the border hoping to start a new life together in America but facing the difficult working conditions at the plant. Amber (Ashley Johnson) is a normal high school teen working at a Mickey’s restaurant who wants more from life than to end up like her mother (Patricia Arquette) who also works at a local fast food place."
