Show Me Your Papers! : An Immigration Romp
Somewhere in Latin America, led by Comandante Barcus, head of the Brave Army of the People-BAP-natives of the Chimeca Nation fail to topple their corrupt government. Fearful of being captured, 200 of them head for the USA hired by CLIC, a Fortune 500 international corporation smuggling workers for big profits. For days, they endure second thoughts, nostalgia, boredom and the rigors of diarrhea hidden inside an eighteen-wheeler. They cross the border but are promptly captured by militias of the Church of the Fuehrer and expelled. They succeed on their second attempt into the USA disguised as Aryans and with the unlikely help of the Church of the Fuehrer. Characters: Com Barcus, conservative young scion of a wealthy family turned leftist and revolutionary after a head wound at the hands of riot police. Sgt Reyna, native turned priest, then law student, then guerrilla fighter. Capt Marina, shapely French socialite fighting for the natives to be close to her love, Com Barcus. Capt Trancaso, former Federal soldier, now BAP's Chief of Staff. Lt Maravilla, adjutant, romantic figure who likes to think and speak in rhythm. Big Al, a 300 pound Chicano-a funny man and beer-drinking machine. Human smuggling vehicle's first driver. Arizona Charlie, a thin and lanky Anglo, not a genius but a conscientious and efficient second driver.
