Logline: 
Juan Valdez, the owner of Boxes Y Mas, prepares for his US Citizenship test with the help of his well-intentioned but ill-informed employees, homeless vagrants, and wacky customers.
Synopsis/Details: 

Juan Valdez is a Mexican immigrant who has built a thriving Mailbox business in the hear of L.A. He’s just days away from his Citizenship test but he isn’t ready. Seeking the assistance of his staff (Tara & Skip) seems like the logical thing to do, but Juan is given a smattering of ridiculous historical anecdotes and tall tales in the process.
