The film chronicles my 40-day pilgrimage along the U.S. – Mexico border and shares stories of people I meet along the way. Featuring interviews by Humberto Velázquez Villalvazo, Estella Vargas, Uriel Vicona Guzman, Maggie Gonzalez, and Alam Martinez.

Alam Martinez: “El centro de detención de Otay Mesa… no es un lugar grato pa’ver a mi hermano… Hemos crecido juntos en toda la vida y la verdad lo extraño mucho… Me duele mi corazón.” “The Otay Mesa Detention Center… is not an enjoyable place to see my brother… We’ve grown up together our entire lives and I really miss him… My heart aches.”
