Director Statement

While we filmed a fictional immigration raid in a Georgia warehouse last August, real raids were raging in Mississippi and across the American South. Tear gas, shootings, and family separations applied to misdemeanor suspects: refugees and migrant workers. This film asks “what are we doing?”

Starring Viviana Chavez (Baby Driver), Norio Nishimura (Dynasty), Jason Todd Smith (Ray), and introducing Olivia Ochoa.
