Scott Thomas, a 29-year-old TV news producer, is dumped by his activist girlfriend when his pursuit of fluffy, profit-driven news conflicts with her idealism. Fortunately, his latest assignment may help him prove he's not a dilettante. Because he's “bright, young enough to work in fast food, and nobody,” Scott is chosen to go undercover at a Gringo's Southwesten Mexican Grille, a chain owned by a nominee for U.S. secretary of labor. Scott tries to expose workplace abuses, but soon finds himself overwhelmed by a pervy boss, condescending training manuals, and the outsourcing of drive-thru jobs to Jamaica. His own hidden camera exposes his every failure, including his confused flirtation with a 19-year-old single mother who works the counter. Scott vows to save her from the sexual harassment of their boss, but she may not be the one who needs saving.
