Honeybee

Alejandro is an undocumented immigrant from Mexico who finds work in the United States. With a mysteriously bruised face, he patiently waits at an empty bus stop where he receives a phone call from his wife, Gloria, and his daughter, Dolores. During the phone call, Dolores reads him a story she wrote while she was in school. The story details an innocent honeybee who works hard to help out its colony but gets squished due to people fearing it would sting them. After drawing parallels from the children's story to real life, Alejandro experiences a flashback to a few hours earlier when he was brutally attacked by racists, thus revealing where the bruises from the beginning originated from.
