Years of working in the food industry have made Juana’s hands fast—very fast. Forced to give up her fruit-vending cart in order to find a more secure job, Juana lands a position as a kitchen assistant at a local Japanese restaurant. While working in the restaurant’s kitchen, Juana secretly observes the sushi chefs and eventually teaches herself to make a multitude of sushi. Eventually she attempts to become a sushi chef, but is unable to, because she is the “wrong” race and gender.
