A Mexican mother of three fights deportation after suffering imprisonment.  This documentary was filmed from the spring of 2017 through the summer of 2018, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Toluca, Mexico.  It shows the many efforts of undocumented immigrant Lourdes Salazar Bautista to avoid deportation for having overstayed her visitor’s visa. The film also shows the impact on her three American-born children of her threatened deportation, and of the actual deportation of her husband, Luis.
