Following his emmigration to the USA in the 1920s, the Austrian architect Rudolph M. Schindler built the Schindler House in West Hollywood. In this essay film, the building serves as a backdrop for the narration of yet another immigrant story - the story of a Mexican family that has lived in the guest house for many years and called the architectural icon their home.
