Perception tells a story on immigration from two points of view- Daniela, a Honduran mother who is pressured by the circumstances of her country to migrate from it with her young daughter; and Alan, an American teen, son to a white supremacist family who is taught by his own to see immigrants as less. Through a non linear narrative and two points of view, Perception is a study on parallel worlds that suffer from society’s pressure, resulting in life and death decisions.
