Through the Wall

Program: SDFF 2017

For two years now, on Sundays, Abril makes a treacherous trip from her home in Southern California to the US/Mexico border. An undocumented immigrant, Abril carries her two-year-old son Julián, an American citizen, to the border each week so they can have family-time with Julián’s father, Uriel. Two years before, Uriel was deported for a minor traffic citation. Julián only knows his father through the wall from these brief furtive meetings.
