Arturo works his customer service job everyday where he and his coworkers struggle to make a living, but with a company buy out, and workers being replaced with military grade weaponry/answering machines, Arturo's future is in danger. With the help of his Chola Guardian Angel, Arturo and his rag tag group of husky Homosexuals begin organizing, can their efforts amount to anything against the larger than life Euphrates Corporation? This Queer Labor Comedy is the latest piece from El Bear co-founder, Rauly Luna.
