Nowhere

12 August to 22 August 2021

Adrian and Sebastian are a Colombian couple living together in New York City, happily in love and both on track for professional success in each of their fields. They have a close group of friends and a loving community, and their futures feel bright and certain. But when Sebastian suddenly loses his job, his immigration status is threatened and these two young dreamers fear losing everything they’ve worked so hard for.

Nowhere is set in that place where so many queer immigrants live, a land between passports where safety is contingent on a structure so complex that a slight shift in the bricks could bring a life crashing down. Adrian and Sebastian try not to let a precarious present and an ambiguous future unsettle their relationship, but the cracks begin to multiply as the dates on Sebastian’s visa tick down. Adrian becomes more and more desperate as he tries to find ways to keep his love with him; as a fellow immigrant he can’t sponsor Sebastian, so he begins proposing all kinds of plans to get around the system. And yet, there are two options Adrian considers even more impossible and frightening than losing Sebastian, as both would require Adrian to come out to his parents.

Adrian and Sebastian’s story is crafted by David and Francisco Salazar, adapted from their award-winning screenplay. At the core of this particular love story is a universal question: how far would you go for the person you love? The unique circumstances that these characters face push them both to the very edge of that question.
