Storyline

Hossam and Djamel are two illegal immigrants. Hossam,a convenience store clerk, is always harassed by a friendly "Enlightened Bum" for free food. The two are friends, but one of them depends on the other for survival. The bum sees LA where he's lived all his life as a Living Hell, whereas Hossam sees it as a magic place where opportunities are everywhere you look. On the other hand, Hossam's roommate Djamel has been unemployed for quite sometime and also depends on him for survival. Things get complicated when Hossam loses his job, putting him and Djamel three months behind on rent. Threatened by Ron, their landlord, Hossam and Djamel become desperate to find work. But as times runs out, hope is defeated by despair, and the two illegals resort to desperate measures to raise cash. Written by Anouar Hadj Smaine
