Come and Take it Day (2001)
Four blue collar Latino San Antonio restaurant workers become involved in a hunt for a mythical buried chest of silver coins with a startlingly tragic outcome.

Nena (Maria Candelaria) is a waitress on her way to graduate school when she discovers the plan to recover the silver, and she involves Carlos (Rick Delgado), a waiter who has had a falling out with Jesse.
