In 1930s Los Angeles, Arturo Bandini (Colin Farrell), a son of Italian-American immigrants, dreams of becoming a famous novelist and marrying a beautiful blonde, and Camilla Lopez (Salma Hayek), a Mexican woman, longs to marry a WASP and shed her last name.

In a time when Anglo-Chicano relations hang by tattered threads, Bandini and Camilla collide with one another, fighting the city and themselves to make their dreams come true.
