Two Mexican immigrants work as cooks at the Café Paraíso. While preparing an endless array of dishes, the youngest rehearses his heroic resignation, through which he hopes to regain his youth and dignity and even win the love of a waitress. But things aren't as they seem at the Café Paraíso, where reality becomes fiction and fiction reality.
