Six masked characters experience one country’s collapse into absurdity. An exploration of the human crisis that has befallen Venezuela. Elsewhere uses mask and storytelling to explore six lives affected by the Venezuelan crisis. In Elsewhere, a grandmother dips into memories of easier times, a beauty queen waits in line to feed her children, a police officer questions his alliance with the government, a homeless man pleads to god, a political prisoner waits for freedom, and a Venezuelan-Canadian watches from afar wondering what she can do to help.
