Pock-marked Kenny Lapin lives with his mother in a forlorn one bedroom apartment and sleeps on a fold out sofa. His mother works as a part time receptionist, in which every month is a struggle to make ends meet. Kenny Lapin would love nothing more than to be rich, so that he could be free to do and buy what he wants. He would love to leave the suburban torture of Hayworth and flee to Southern California's eternal summer.
Instead he is forced to work at Benny Burger a fast food franchise and earn a paltry wage. There he meets Kahina, a saucy and sophisticated girl who works the register and who he would like to get close to, and Javier with whom Kenny works with in the kitchen to closing time. All of them are tyrannized by a twenty-something assistant manager, Greg Brewster. On the top of Hamburger Heaven hen-picking order is Mel, a complete Panglossian idiot who thinks working at Benny Burger is a chance of life time. When Greg Brewster punches Kenny and Mel out a half hour before they have finished closing, it is a rude awakening to how unfair the working world is.
To even things up, Kenny has no recourse but to steal from the store's safe on the biggest day in the restaurant's history...the day Benny Burger, the corporate clown comes to visit the franchise...
