    • Salvador is a young Chilean who moves to London to study English and travel around Europe. While in London, he stays with his aunt Maria, an immature 55 year old woman. When Salvador’s parents face unexpected economic hardship, it threatens to cut short their son’s London experience. Seduced by what the city has to offer, Salvador refuses to return to Chile. With the help of Maria and his other flatmates (Ivan, a Russian drug dealer and Yoshiko, his Japanese girlfriend), he manages to stay and find temporary jobs but difficult and challenging situations will force him out of his protected ourgeois reality. // Sinopsis festival Latino de San Diego: A wealthy young Chilean named Salvador (Diego Ruiz) visits his aunt Maria (Paulina Garcia from the critically acclaimed Gloria) in London.
