A documentary about undocumented Mexican immigrants in the United States, the film is an intimate look at the struggles, contributions and aspirations of undocumented Mexican immigrants and their families. The film examines U.S. policy decisions that triggered the rise of undocumented immigration. The film reveals the reasons why millions of Mexican workers have settled in the U.S. over the past four decades instead of returning home. It also illuminates the remarkable networks that connect the film’s characters with the families they left behind and the very real human impact of the anti-immigration backlash now sweeping the country.
