In this funny, poignant satire, Ugandan playwright Deborah Asiimwe explores the US visa application process from an African perspective. A group of visa applicants anxiously await their fate in a US embassy waiting room in a developing country, comparing strategies and experiences with one another between appointments with the "gODs" behind the counter. Discover an international face of the United States that many Americans never encounter, and find out what it’s like to knock on America’s door.
