Huevos is a tragicomedy -- or a "commie tragedy" -- that follows the adventures of a modern Don Quixote and Sancho Panza as they pursue their high ideals on the racially-divided plains of West Texas. Caleb Hotchkiss, an idealistic high school outsider, goes to battle for a number of left-wing causes of the 1980’s, followed by his adoring but somewhat reluctant friend Liberato Peña. Together, Caleb and Liberato traverse the landscape of the Llano Estacado, with its prosperity preachers, drive-in theaters, swimming holes and high school football rivalries -- as well as a lesser-known culture of Mexican folk healers, illegal immigrants, and tamale eating contests. Along the way, Caleb not only learns about Liberato's Mexican culture, but resolves to defend Latin America from U.S. imperialism. But is Caleb serious about his politics? Or is he only trying to impress Liberato’s beautiful cousin Fredette, the only Hispanic member of the Angus High pep squad, the “Bullettes”? Liberato and Fred will only find out when Caleb becomes a “Sandalista” and goes to Nicaragua to join the Sandinista revolution. On the way, Liberato discovers his sexuality and finds his own sort of heroism.
