Together Chino and his deaf-mute friends and wife go over the pros and cons of him fleeing Cuba to join Jose, a gay Mexican who has fallen in love with him and is ready to help him leave the country and obtain papers to work in Mexico. But Jose wonders if Chino’s loves him or if he just wants to earn himself a better life and send money back to his needy wife and young children.
