Perro Bomba is the story of how Steevens, a young Haitian immigrant living in Santiago de Chile, has his relatively stable life upended when his childhood friend, Junior, arrives in Chile and is looking for help settling into the city. Steevens does everything he can to help Junior, including getting him a job at the construction company he works for. An incident at work causes racial tensions to erupt and Steevens loses his job. Now without a job, Steevens is forced to leave his home and is left wandering the city, looking for a chance to restart his life.
