Mario's plans are seemingly ruined when his visa application is rejected due to the stricter policies implemented in the post 9/11 aftermath.

Along the way he befriends, Blanca, a beautiful exotic dancer that will make him question whether the road to true happiness lies in following your heart or in fulfilling the American Dream"--Container
