After the crisis of 2008, Socorro Arenas began his career as an extra with the dream of becoming an actor one day. 12 years later, at 61, Socorro is still pursuing his dream. Through him, “Extra” pays tribute to all the nameless and faceless people who have been part of the history of cinema since its beginnings, and who make movies as magical as the first day.
