A fascinating look at a rarely seen side of Hollywood, this program follows the trials and travails of five hard-working Latina actresses who dub Desperate Housewives for Spanish language audiences in the U.S. With real lives that are often as dramatic and desperate as those of their onscreen counterparts, these dynamic women struggle to pursue their Hollywood dreams while balancing the responsibilities of paying rent and raising children. The film chronicles their lives as they audition for parts and work in the dubbing studio while striving for a career that offers more prominent – and on-screen – roles.
