Alba, an 8-year-old girl who lives alone with her father, goes out one night to throw out the garbage. In a dead end, next to the containers, he meets Naim, a South African immigrant. Two different worlds will come into contact to show that friendship has no age, color or borders. In the Universe we are all connected; sometimes capriciously.

Estrella Mi amigo Naim

The increase in poverty, the fierce struggle for survival and the search for opportunities for immigrants and natives is undermining the peaceful relations that should be maintained between people of any class, race or social class.

Children do not look at language or social class. They simply play with those who share trust and generosity: Their friends.

But this is the world of children, the one that should be. That of adults is different. It moves under other parameters, prejudices and power struggles. A world that, in the worst case, drags the human being to battle, even for a sad piece of bread.

Candela Moreno Mi Amigo Naim


Alba is an 8-year-old girl who lives in extreme poverty with her father Adolfo. She is apparently a normal, intelligent, smart and outgoing girl. He loves meeting people and making friends. She is bold, a little cheeky and very sensitive

Jesús Puchol Mi Amigo Naim


He is a rude person, bitter and given to drink. Life has not been too kind to him. After losing his job during the crisis, his wife abandoned him.

He has a somewhat aggressive attitude, he adores his daughter, although he often ends up screwing up.

Roland Fosso Mi Amigo Naim


An African immigrant, leaving behind a harsh past, searches the containers at night looking for scrap metal, while during the day he rushes to fulfill the European dream. A dream in a Europe that has nothing to do with the image that is sold of it in Africa.
