With tongue-in-cheek, Rhett Martinez delivers a satirical look at the consequences of U.S. and UN military intervention in the unsettling world of a volatile Latin-American country. Under the control of a corrupt dictatorship, a displaced Queen, a Haberdasher and a mute Bellhop try to maintain a facade of normalcy in a once grand hotel--until an American intervenes.
