This humourous and lovingly crafted video features Samuel, a Salvadorean university student and political refugee, and his alter ego Samantha, a drag queen and performer. Through Samuel/Samantha's eyes we discover a segment of the Latin American community in Toronto. S/he talks about the challenges that Latin gay men face, within their own community and the gay community at large.

Ce vidéo plein d'humour, réalisé avec beaucoup d'attention, nous présente Samuel, étudiant et réfugié politique salvadorien, et son alter ego Samantha, travesti et artiste de scène. Nous découvrons une partie de la communauté latino-américaine de Toronto telle que Samuel/Samantha la voit. Il/elle nous parle des défis que doivent relever les homosexuels "latinos", dans leur communauté même, et dans la communauté gaie en générale.
