The story of a young Mexican man named Ramon who lives in a small village in Durango, México. Because of a lack of opportunities and the threats from the drug lords in his village, Ramón has tried to migrate to the USA five times without success. A friend tells him to go to Wiesbaden, Germany, where he an aunt, who is married to a German man can offer work and help. Ramón follows his friend's advice, flying to Germany only to find that his friend's aunt is no longer living at that address. Ramón has to live on the streets, begging for money and food. He runs into some kind strangers eager to help.

An old woman in particular (Ruth) sees him around town and offers to take him in at her place and has him help with odd jobs at her apartment building. Despite the language barrier, the two become good friends and Ramon is generally welcomed by the neighbors who enjoy his help and his dance lessons. One day Ramon goes missing, and unable to find him, Ruth discovers that he had been reported to the police and has been deported back to Mexico. Ramon is reunited with his family and friends but longs for the warmth and kindness he received in Germany. A few days later, Ramon receives a call from Ruth who has decided to wire transfer him a large amount of money.
