Like an unreal dream, in the crossroad of the world : New York Times Square, a group of people wearing cartoon costumes live beneath those giant dazzling screens. Under the economic repression of The United States, laborers from Peru, Mexico, and Colombia are forced to leave their home and illegally stay in the origin of American dream.


Comic characters conceal their true identities. Earning money by taking photos with tourists, the well known outside image feed the hidden real self.
