Choking Man synopsis

Ecuadorian immigrant Jorge (Octavio Gómez Berrios) makes a meager living scrubbing dishes in a Queens, N.Y. diner. Constantly harassed by the restaurant's overbearing manager, Jerry (Aaron Paul), Jorge yearns for romance with the new waitress, Amy (Eugenia Yuan). But he's hampered by his severe shyness and the fact that Jerry's also interested in her. While working his life away and dying on the inside, Jorge escapes to a series of vividly imagined fantasy worlds.
