Alejandro Tazo, a Chilean thirty-something, is wandering around Nashville, USA. Tazo wants to make a failed “love trip” worthwhile, so he wants to work, meet people and hang in Music City, while he licks his emotional wounds. But he will soon realize that things aren’t predictable or easy, and that being a foreigner always carries a certain degree of alienation. Alejandro Tazo loves America, yes, but will America love him back?
