Positive letters!

LAS CARTAS DE ALOU (Letters from Alou) is a well-written and well-acted story about a young African man's life as an illegal immigrant in Spain.

Alou arrives in Spain without the proper papers and without a penny to his name. He is, however, rich in hope and perseverance. Soon, Alou finds work; it is the kind of work that only illegal immigrants can get. He learns to survive in a different culture and he learns to deal with discrimination. First Alou has to learn to speak Spanish, and then he learns how to navigate himself around the new land without being caught by the police or cheated by others. Alou makes friends; they are mainly other illegal aliens who survive by helping each other out. He also finds romance with a Spanish girl.

As Alou struggles to make a living, he writes positive letters to his parents at home about his new life in Spain. LAS CARTAS DE ALOU can be the story of many faceless and nameless illegal immigrants in any country.
