Description

A wealthy young Chilean named Salvador (Diego Ruiz) visits his aunt Maria (Paulina Garcia from the critically acclaimed Gloria) in London. She lives in a small flat with multiple other emigres trying to make a living in the sprawling city. During his time abroad, Salvador experiences a rush of conflicting emotions as he watches Maria struggle with her alcohol addiction and his new roommates battle the bureaucratic red tape facing immigrants looking for a better life. Director Gonzalo Diaz weaves this political subtext with a coming-of-age story full of nuance and sobering epiphany.
