Someone Like Me follows the parallel journeys of Drake, a gay asylum seeker from Uganda, and a group of strangers from Vancouver’s queer community who are tasked with supporting his resettlement in Canada. Together, they embark on a year-long quest for personal freedom, revealing how in a world where one must constantly fight for the right to exist, survival itself becomes a victory.


Someone Like Me suit les parcours parallèles de Drake, un demandeur d’asile gai originaire de l’Ouganda, et de membres de la communauté queer de Vancouver qui ne se connaissent pas, mais s’unissent pour soutenir sa réinstallation au Canada. Ensemble, pendant un an, les protagonistes entreprennent une quête de liberté personnelle qui nous amène à constater que, dans un monde où il faut constamment lutter pour le droit d’exister, la survie devient en soi une victoire.
