When Sean (Matt Bomer), a single TV weatherman living in Los Angeles, is put on gardening leave from work, he quickly realizes that solitude doesn’t exactly suit him. Driving past a hardware store, he spies Ernesto (Alejandro Patiño), a middle-aged Latino migrant with a friendly face, and hires him to do some home repairs. Despite the language barrier, the two men develop an unexpected but profound friendship based on the everlasting need for connection. Papi Chulo is a heartfelt comedy and a fresh take on the buddy movie that explores communication across clear racial and socio-economic lines, in one of the biggest cities on earth.

Zero One follows Jimmy Park through NYC for the last 24 hours of 2013. He’s visiting home for the first time in years and has nothing to show for his time away in Seoul. But old tensions come to a head when he confronts his homophobic sister over a deeply dysfunctional family dinner. On New Year’s Day, 2014, Jim will learn that the first step to finding your path is admitting you’re lost.
