After fifteen years of living undocumented in the U.S., teenage Kimberly Torrez finds herself living on the other side of the border in Nogales, Sonora. Her mother Vanessa became stuck in Mexico after visiting her dying mother and now Kimberly must cross the border each day so that she can still attend school in the US. Her father maintains US citizenship, but he is out of work and in need of a liver transplant so they desperately need the mother to get a Visa.
