An Argentine soap opera star moves to New York City to pursue his dreams but he soon finds that the challenges of being an immigrant are more than he expected.
Nico (Guillermo Pfening), is a 30-something actor who leaves a promising career in Argentina after a romantic break-up with his male married producer. Like many before him, cast adrift in New York City, Nico is thwarted in his efforts to land a job in either movies or on the stage. A smarmy agent advises him that Latinos are hot, but that he’s too blond and that his accent has to go. Nico overstays his visa, juggles odd jobs (nannying for a wealthy friend; cleaning apartments) and engages in petty theft. Surprise visits from a former co-star and his ex-lover force him to reckon with his national, individual, and sexual identities.
Pfening delivers a masterful, low-key performance that subtly unpacks the psychology of how immigration can turn lives into lies.” – Hollywood Reporter
