Who would you hurt to climb the corporate ladder? Add a pinch of corporate greed, with a dash of unrelenting ambition, and you have a recipe for a disaster affecting the lives of hundreds.

Nathan, the junior executive, fueled by his desire for the boss's daughter, must make a critical business decision that can destroy the lives of many. Can the wisdom of a Puerto Rican security guard, or a Angela's home-cooked meal save the day?

Take a deep smell and enjoy the aroma, the allure, and the passion of Arroz con Pollo.

Play Summary

Nathan, a corporate climbing, Midwestern transplant, and junior executive, is working late night in his office in a high-rise in Manhattan. He meets Victor, a security guard, who visits his office, and they become friendly. Later that same night he meets Angela, Victor's daughter, who regularly delivers a home-cooked meal for her father at work. Angela suspects that Nathan is there to manage mass layoffs, and challenges Nathan to a game of poker. If she wins, her father avoids the layoff. She wins, and this impresses Nathan. Angela and Nathan become buddies, and she eventually brings him meals when she hears he likes a sample of the food given to him by Victor. Angela becomes even more interested in Nathan. Angela dropped out of NYU when her mother (Victor’s wife) died, in order to take care of Victor. Victor wants Angela happy, and focused less on caring for him. Victor, a recovering alcoholic, works late night to pay for her NYU tuition. However, Nathan's attention is on Emily, another junior executive, who is the daughter of his boss. Nathan hears that Emily's father likes people who make tough decisions, so he figures if he makes a tough layoff recommendation it would impress him, and increase his chances with Emily. He ultimately befriends Emily, who wants to escape from her father's control. Victor advises Nathan against the layoffs, and warns about the unexpected consequence of such decisions. The layoff becomes reality. A drunk and depressed laid off worker drives his car through the city, accidentally killing Angela on the street outside of the workplace as she is delivering another meal for her father. An anguished Victor is holding Angela in his arms on the street as Nathan learns about his role in her death. A depressed Nathan contemplates quitting but is forgiven by Victor.
