The Deported features those All-American individuals who are part of the fabric of every community. They have played high school football, been in the Boy or Girl Scouts, been a cheerleader, coached football, gone to the prom, been valedictorian, joined the military. They may have children, parents, friends, coworkers, lovers – people who care deeply about them. They are pursuing their American Dream. But then an event happens: a misplaced document, a traffic stop, a DUI, a minor drug infraction. This launches a surreal journey that may eventually lead to loss of the right to reside in the U.S. We experience the final stages of the deportation process with them.
