San Antonio (Texas) What happens when a foreign professional starts working in corporate America? What is the dialogue that occurs within an immigrant’s soul? Nos Vemos En Purgatorio tells the story of the journey of Latina immigrant María Alicia Correa in corporate America. After years of preparation, María Alicia finally lands a dream job in a corporation, but shortly thereafter she finds out the dream was not exactly what she expected and starts evolving from naive immigrant into a person that ultimately she does not recognize or care for, building her own Purgatory of lies and sins.
Written from an immigrant’s point of view, Nos Vemos En Purgatorio sheds light and discloses juicy details on topics that are never-to-be-spoken in the corporate world, such as discrimination of minorities by other minorities.Nos Vemos En Purgatorio is chock-full of dramatic details, funny situations, erotic passages and ‘aha’ moments, packaged in a story bursting with twists, self-discovery, characters that are not what they appear and an unexpected ending.
