Extraterrestrials have arrived… Doctors thinking about “discrimination” in a conversation full of black humor

Chilean doctors are preparing a panel discussion in an international conference. The theme is “How to overcome discrimination”. In the recent years where extraterrestrial lifeforms known as Amenites have come to Earth as refugees, it is said that discriminatory treatment against these refugees is common among many medical practitioners. What creates violence? Can one love someone that is “other” to them? Questions examined closely through collective creation is posed humorously, ironically, and yet truthfully.
