Papi Chulo

Papi Chulo

Cast adrift in Los Angeles, Sean — a lonely TV weatherman — drives past a middle-aged Latino migrant worker standing outside a hardware store looking for work.  He decides to hire this kind-looking man — to be his friend.  Sean is young, gay and white; Ernesto, portly, straight and married.  Despite having nothing in common and the language barrier, they build a sort of friendship until Sean becomes consumed with a deeper obsessive need.

Papi Chulo is a black comedy about loneliness and the desire to find connection across clear racial and socio-economic lines.
