A moving portrayal of a group of Chilean political refugees who arrived at a Vancouver residential hotel in 1974, months after Chile’s bloody military coup. Passionate and insightful, the play brilliantly captures the immigrant and exile experience in Canada. It is a story about love and the strength of the human spirit. (, 2014).
