In post-9/11 Bolivia harsh new laws let authorities assume that all visa applicants want to immigrate to the US. That is exactly the hurdle that Mario Alvarez faces at the beginning of the film. He plans on traveling to Miami to reunite with his son and start a new life in the US, but first he must secure a visa. Mario soon finds out that this is no small task, and he may have to resort to slightly unorthodox methods to get what he needs. Further complicating matters is Blanca, a charming young woman who is looking for change in her life. She envisions leaving her job at a local strip club, and perhaps building a relationship with Mario in Bolivia.
