"Steevens is a young Haitian immigrant living a challening, but somewhat stable life in Santiago de Chile: he has a construction job, a home, friends, and fun. But this precariously balanced life is disrupted when Junior, a childhood friend from Haiti, arrives in Chile seeking assistance from Steevens to establish himself. Junior has entered Chile without papers and doesn't speak any Spanish. Steevens does everything he can to support his friend and even manages to get him a job with his employer. When an incident at work erupts racial tensions and stokes a large anti-immigration sentiment in the city, Steveens loses his working documents. Now without a job, Steevens has to vacate his home and is left to wander the city, looking for a chance to restart his life beyond the margins of society."
Language: Spanish and Haitian Creole
