Event Originally produced by FilmRise in 2015.
Summary Three undocumented teenagers are just about to graduate high school in the Bronx. But unlike the everyday problems of New York adolescents, these three live with the threat of being discovered by the authorities and deported. When one of their teachers connects them with a lawyer to help them get their papers, the teens start to dig into their family histories to assist their immigration cases. Winner of the Audience Award for Narrative Spotlight at **SXSW Film Festival**. Winner of Best American Feature Film and Mention spéciale du Jury at the **Champs-Élysées Film Festival** *"It's one thing to read about roundups of suspected illegal immigrants; it's quite another to observe the anxiety of smart, talented teenagers trying to keep their cool while under the watchful gaze of immigration officials and the police." - Stephen Holden, **New York Times*** *"...As a responsible political statement about the chaos we live in now, it's both enlightening and troubling." - Rex Reed, **New York Observer***
