It's a fractured story about a naive, impulsive, but above all else passionate man, one who will do anything for his family, who will stop at nothing to live his dream. It is a look into one of the major social issues of the 21st century, immigration. Ajileo journeys from his home in Zapotitlan de Salinas, a village in southern Mexico, makes a perilous border crossing through the desert, and comes to Hollywood, where everything and nothing is as he dreamed it would be.
