After 9/11 the US began mass deporting “non-citizens.” Current estimates: 4 to 6 million. These policies hit Latinos hardest, mostly Mexicans: 97% of those deported. Without Mexican family or citizenship, Mexicans raised in the US are disavowed by both nations. They struggle to survive in a hellish limbo along the border separated from everyone and everything they have ever known. Shot on location in Tijuana, this film follows the lives of three men stuck in an impossible situation: how they find meaning and purpose in a world where deportees live in cardboard shacks and sewer pipes in the middle of a Cartel war zone just twenty miles from San Diego.
