synopsis

Afro-Latina actress Cristina struggles with her natural hair during a busy day of auditions. She spends the day trying to fit into a Hollywood-esque "Latina" beauty standard in hopes of booking a role, while her best friend encourages her to write and produce her own material. Cristina refuses to do so, instead focusing her attention on an upcoming "big break" audition. Her hopes are disrupted, however, when the audition takes a turn for the worse.
