In ALTAR, Eugenio, a young Mexican immigrant living in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, experiences heartbreak when Benjamin, his new boyfriend, inexplicably "ghosts" him. Looking to the traditional Mexican holiday Dia de Muertos, Eugenio decides to build an altar in the hopes that he will be able to summon his boyfriend's "ghost" and gain the closure he so desperately desires.

In Urn, siblings Esteban and Mariana reconnect at their mother's funeral after years of being estranged. Guzman explores the concept of "home" from the perspective of two immigrants who have to deal with the consequences of what happens when the only person who has grounded them in their cultural identity is gone.
