Description

Fearing for his life, Joaquín, an HIV+ gay Salvadorian political activist, seeks asylum in Canada but the outcome of his refugee claim looks bleak. He is summoned to the Border Agency where he will receive the response to his refugee claim. Brutally frank and perceptive, Samuel Lopez’s documentary looks closely at how identity and ideology converge in one man’s pursuit of sanctuary.
