A Days Work – 17min
What was a typical job escalates into a violent argument in this heart-stopping drama. Enrique is a
young man far from home trying to make a living wage as a day laborer on the streets of Los Angeles.
He thinks he has finally caught a break when an American couple picks him up, along with two other
immigrant laborers, to help them move. On the job he meets and befriends their teenage son, but
things take a turn for the worst when the father of the family attempts to pay the men with a check. A
simple misunderstanding explodes into a violent standoff. Hope and fear collide as Enrique weighs the
consequences of his actions and must decide where his loyalty lies.
