As an undocumented immigrant, he faces physical, verbal, emotional, economic and sexual abuse by mostly other Latinos. A series of events makes him question the system and his dreams of success in a society that he perceives as racist and exclusionary.

Erick wants Marco to get an education despite his undocumented status. This indie feature film addresses the issues of immigration, family separation, the right to higher education, homophobia and acceptance of differences.
