    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 dark comedy about loneliness and the desire to find connection across clear racial and socio-economic lines.
