    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. Torres' utterly unique sensibilities prove a perfectly cracked lens through which to find the surreal humor in the darker aspects of the human experience, the elusive American Dream and the immigrant experience in the United States.
