This entertaining documentary follows five Latina actresses in Los Angeles who dub the series “Desperate Housewives” for Spanish-language audiences in the U.S. These dynamic women struggle to pursue their Hollywood careers while balancing the responsibilities of making rent and raising children - surviving but with their dreams always out of reach. As they confront an industry that offers few balanced or compelling roles, their elusive success reveals the persistent inequities of Latino representation in American media.
