Mariano Fainstein hasn't seen his wife in almost three months, and he may have to miss his daughter's wedding. Because of the recent economic crisis in Argentina, the 52-year-old electronics engineer temporarily left his home in Buenos Aires in hopes of landing a new job in Los Angeles to support his family. He's staying with friends in Sherman Oaks while in talks with a company that has expressed interest in him. If he gets the job, he won't be able to go home in time to walk his daughter down the aisle. To make matters worse, he isn't sure his wife is willing to join him here.
