Walo, a young Nicaraguan man, dreams of leaving his mundane hometown and moving overseas to live the good life with his Spanish girlfriend. It doesn’t make much sense to stay, anyway– he’s treated like an outsider and subjected to constant ridicule by seemingly everyone in town. But to get a plane ticket, he needs cash, which isn’t easy to come by in the poorest country in Latin America.
However, his quest for money only seems to get him deeper and deeper into trouble, putting him into conflict with everyone around him as he repeatedly sacrifices his own principles and relationships in order to keep his dream from falling apart.
As his decisions set in motion an unpredictable journey towards opportunity in foreign lands, it becomes apparent that finding your place in this world doesn’t have as much to do with where you are, but who you are.
Whether he eventually realizes that or not is anyone’s guess…
