Alejandro (Julio Torres) is an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador, struggling to bring his unusual ideas to life in New York City. As time on his work visa runs out, a job assisting an erratic art-world outcast (Tilda Swinton) becomes his only hope to stay in the country and realize his dream. From writer/director Julio Torres comes a surreal adventure through the equally treacherous worlds of New York City and the U.S. Immigration system.

“Heartfelt from the first moments, Torres’ directorial debut will undoubtedly stick with you and have you dreaming of the odyssey of your own life – and, of course, how you hope to push through it like Alejandro does for himself.” ~ Lex Briscuso, Little White Lies
