The Unwanted Guests
(Caluga o menta)


Niki, one of the many unemployed young people in his neighborhood, has become a drifter. At 24, he has become part of what is called, in Chili, «streetcorner culture», developed where idle people get together to spend the day. These young people are immersed in «time outside of time», where every day is the same. It’s as if there were no place for them in this world. They are the unwanted guests.
