Eduardo Lin loves New York. Where else could an aspiring (if under-employed) Honduran actor possibly want to be? In THE BIG BANANA, we follow the struggles of Eduardo, his gringo boss Charlie, his true love Mirian, and his many Latin American friends to survive in the Big Apple. Beneath their hardscrabble everyday lives, we also perceive their hopes, their nightmares, and their outlandish, Hollywood-inspired fantasies. And some days, when times are bad, it seems those flimsy Hollywood fantasies are all that keep Eduardo going. Yet even if the New York winter "reaches deep beyond his bones," and the snow-covered city stands "like a bride awaiting her fiancee," he is still determined to win her heart.
