In The Visitor, a bored professor finds squatters in his unused Manhattan apartment. Through compassion and curiosity, he lets them stay, and they become friends. Turns out they are illegal immigrants and are thrown into the turmoil of discovery and detention. The professor uses his resources as best he can to help them, friendships deepen, small gestures become very important. A human drama with a big heart.
