An idealistic Mexican colonel obsessed with building a better Mexico loses his daughters to the allure of America. A young Latina struggles to communicate with her immigrant grandfather when her mother prohibits her from speaking Spanish. A boy grapples with the slippery nature of laws, rules and ambition along the US-Mexico border in his quest for the American Dream. An elderly woman’s land, life and loyalties are divided by a controversial border fence. A South American immigrant encounters racism and love in an LA elevator as turmoil swirls around a radical change in immigration policy. In post-apocalyptic New York, a Latina fights to defend the last vestiges of a nation’s pride as disgruntled creditors threaten to confiscate the Statue of Liberty. And a resourceful American survivor seeks freedom and peace on foreign soil.
