What would be your dream job?

Drinking whiskey.

Francisco Javier is a 22-year-old Colombian who lives in Manhattan with his father and his older brother. Francisco moved to the U.S. 16 years ago and settled in Manhattan four years ago. Now Francisco commutes to Pleasantville where he, like his father and brother, work as a painters. Francisco says that he only goes back home to Colombia once every two years, and now Francisco’s two-year-older wife just had a daughter, she is only a month old and lives with her mother in Colombia.
