Jefe Plot and Trailer
César, a dry and dull boss, is at the helm of a multi-million dollar company when his life begins to nosedive! His wife kicks him out of his home, the company is a drowning mess in the stock market, and his partners decide to abandon him.
To top that, he discovers that chunks of money are being taken from his accounts, and César feels like he’s reached rock bottom.
He decides to stay at the office and work round-the-clock to get things back on track. Neither César nor anyone else expects the night janitor, Ariana, to get him out of this mess. But hey, presto! She does.
Operation Rescue César then ensues, as the two lead characters try to diffuse the situation one green wire at a time!
The comical frustration of César is thoroughly entertaining to watch, with intervals of respite provided by the very polar opposite, Ariana. The one-and-a-half-hour comedy is bound to keep interest levels up, while engaging viewers with its utterly whimsical sense of humor.
