That all fits into his plans to live a life without worry miles from his suburban home: to drink, to dance, and find willing bodies to call his own. He flaunts his status as a foreigner and uses his fluency in Spanish to remain on what he calls the ultimate margin. But love has a funny way of twisting ones fate. His new found love for Lima-born Clara and their decision to start a family toss this grinning American from the periphery of Limas streets into its very core where he strives to replicate his own concept of home and family far from his suburban roots. No longer crafting a life void of meaning and care, he now attempts to eke out a living with all the cares in the world, harnessing knowledge and skill for the most mundane of pursuits... pay rent and fill the fridge.
