    • Synopsis
    • This is the story of Salvador, who moves to London from Chile to study English and travel around Europe at his parents’ expense. He stays with his aunt Maria, who makes a rather decent living renting the rooms of the building she lives in to other immigrants. But when a financial crisis back home leaves Salvador with no resources of his own, he has no choice but to make ends meet with the help of Maria and his flatmates (including a Russian drug dealer and his Japanese girlfriend), taking on a series of short-term, and at times, dangerous jobs.
