Synopsis

By turns heartfelt and blistering, this urgent film documents the plight of “Green Card Soldiers,” who, after committing minor criminal offenses, are deported. By focusing on three Mexican U.S. military veterans with very different fates— including the story of Chicago’s Miguel Perez, Jr. and an anonymous man who has been recruited by a Mexican drug cartel— director Andrew Renzi exposes a tragic injustice, both for the soldiers who fight and the country they fight for.

“Raises provocative and disturbing issues about how our government treats people who served the country more selflessly than most.”
-Hollywood Reporter
