A winner of HBO's Latinx Short Film Competition, this direct film tells the sadly familiar tale of an actor grappling with the racism of the Hollywood machine. It's hard to tell a full story in 15 minutes, so the ending feels a little rushed. But the point is made, even though it's not a fair one: sometimes you can beat the system by becoming a part of it. In doing so, though, Cristina, now in power, gives opportunities to other women like her
