A girl wants to be a Llama so she can spit at people. Two boys pray to a saint to lose their virginity and their mother quits her job to fulfill a little man’s fantasy of running a burito delivery service. As the heat of the summer bakes the streets of New York, people fall in and out of love, devour each other’s dreams, and seek their revenge.
