LUCIÉRNAGAS

When Ramin hid on a cargo ship leaving Turkey, he never expected to end up in Veracruz, Mexico. As a young gay man, he fled persecution in his home country, Iran, with the hopes of making it to somewhere in Europe. Now, having arrived on the other side of the world, he is desperately looking for a way to travel back across the ocean, while coping with the distance that he has taken with his boyfriend and his past. But the paradox of his feelings is immense. While in a state of longing and nostalgia, Ramin begins to explore local relationships, sometimes full of ambiguity.
