Synopsis by Olivia Cantor

Directed by Heidi Ewing, this drama is based on the real-life story of gay couple Ivan (Armando Espitia) and Gerardo (Christian Vasquez). In Mexico where homosexuality bears a stigma, Ivan hides his gayness for fear of being deprived of visitation rights to see his son with an ex. Also frustrated with his culinary life not taking off, Ivan decides to try his luck and enters America as an undocumented immigrant. He lands in New York, where Gerardo also follows suit. In New York, the two find it challenging to achieve the American dream, but they could now be openly gay.
