I am from Chile Is a very powerful, human story about immigration, solidarity and finding common ground with other cultures in a new country.

Salvador, moves to London from Chile to study English and travel around Europe at his parents’ expense. He stays with his aunt María, who makes a rather decent living renting the rooms of the building she lives in to other immigrants. But when a financial crisis back home leaves Salvador with no resources of his own, he has no choice but to make ends meet with the help of María and his flatmates (including a Russian drug dealer and his Japanese girlfriend), taking on a series of short-term, and at times, dangerous jobs.
