Bemvindo tell the story of a young Brazilian man’s arrival in New York City in 1962. After a discouraging first few days, Rafael is left penniless, homesick and desperate. He begins to lose hope until an unexpected friendship with a Haitian immigrant reignites his resolve to succeed in America and gives him hope for the future.
Though the story is set in the 60's, 50 years later the same story still happens to immigrants who don't get paid and can't eat. This is the story of my father's first week in the United States in search of his own American dream.
