Beatriz at Dinner

Beatriz, a Mexican immigrant, has built a career as a health practitioner drawing on her kindness and sensitivity.  She collides with her antithesis, a self-indulging billionaire, at a wealthy clients' dinner party.

Horrifically gauche and unnervingly awkward this disconcerting dinner date falls flat.
