Dumped by his activist girlfriend when he won't commit to her brand of idealism, reporter Scott Thomas sets out to prove his own dedication to do-gooding. He goes undercover at a fast-food Mexican restaurant where he hopes to lay blame for workplace abuses on the chain's owner, the next secretary of labor. But instead of revealing corporate wrongdoing, Scott's hidden camera captures his own ineptitude—and his confused flirtation with Maria, a single mom who works the counter. Unsure if he's out to do good or just impress, Scott vows to save Maria from their boss's sexual harassment. But Maria may not be the one who needs saving. Darkly funny and deeply entertaining, this tale looks at a man trying to change the world without changing himself.
