Synopsis:
After 18 years in the U.S., a suburban Chicago family is torn apart by deportation orders. With Janina and 6-year-old Brian trapped in Poland, Tony channels his fury into a years-long crusade to bring his family home and fix the broken U.S. immigration system. His trajectory crosses with Chicago’s political heavyweights, including a rising-star senator named Barack Obama, in this emotionally urgent, galvanizing documentary.
