Anthony Ruiz, Onix Duran, Aida Angotti and Santana Pilarte star in the madcap ethnic comedy, Grand Opening, written and directed by newcomer Eddy Duran. When Pablo Mercado (Ruiz) hits gold with a lotto ticket, and uses the funds to realize his lifelong dream of opening his own supermarket, El Osso Grande ('The Big Bear'), he is instantly plagued with a circus of buffoonery. From a knife-wielding stockboy, to a butcher terrified of the sight of blood, to a gay security guard with a penchant for picking up male staff members, to a lightning-paced grocery bagger anxious to enter the book of world records for speed, Pablo juggles a whirlwind of problems. El Osso Grande may just survive - if Pablo can only straighten out the most nutty and incompetent staff ever assembled.
