This holiday season, experience the inspiring story of a family that is torn apart by ICE, but never broken. From rising BIPOC director, Anike Tourse, comes a powerful and moving film about the immigrant experience in America.

When ICE raids the Diaz home on Thanksgiving Day, the family is ripped apart. Mother Marisol is arrested and detained, father Jorge is forced to seek refuge in a synagogue, and eldest son Koke is deported. Middle son Emiliano, an attorney, launches a crusade in the courts to reunite the family, while youngest daughter Valentina sparks a social media campaign that shares their story with the world. As each family member braves their way through the crisis, they discover unexpected reserves of love, faith and the restorative resilience of community.

Join this moving journey as the Diaz family discovers supporters on both sides of the border, standing by their side and championing their quest to be together.
