2022 - 3 mins - Drama
An undocumented immigrant receives a heartwarming yet heartbreaking phone call from his daughter across the border.
As a first generation American, the topic of immigration is and will always be very personal to not only myself but my family as well. Although I personally never experienced much discrimination in my life, the idea that so many others similar to me have to suffer every day is nothing short of sickening. Through the emotional power that cinema holds, I wish to give a voice to those who are silenced. Although you can argue the politics of immigration, you cannot argue about the legitimacy of the torment they must face. I dedicate this film to the many Hispanic immigrants, whether they're undocumented or not, who have to constantly endure the brutality of racism and prejudice that scar this nation.
