Tagline: On May 14 there will be no Mexicans in California.

Plot: It seemed like just another day when the residents of California awoke from their peaceful slumber. The usual pink smog filled the air, creating a foggy haze over the mid-morning sunrise as the population rubbed their eyes, ready to face another...wait a minute, PINK smog? On further inspection the residents discover, to their horror, that disaster has struck The Golden State overnight. The entire Latin-American population has been wiped out in one fell swoop, meaning that one third of the citizens have suddenly vanished! With the governor conspicuous by his absence, it's up to the redoubtable Senator Steven Abercrombie III (John Getz) to grapple with the problem. Unfortunately Abercrombie is widely known for his anti-immigration stance, and with California falling apart he hardly seems to be the right man to take charge of the situation! Hope comes in the unlikely figure of TV news reporter Lila Rodriguez (Yareli Arizmendi), a Hispanic who has somehow survived the mass exodus. But a demented military geneticist holds Rodriguez under lock and key where he tries to extract her DNA, believing he can create a vaccine to prevent other ethnic groups from vanishing. As the film builds to an eyebrow-raising conclusion, nothing can be taken for granted in this zany, off the wall comedy.
