Abstract:

"With intimate access and striking imagery, Sin País (Without Country) explores one family's experience as they are separated by deportation.

After raising their family for nearly 20 years in the Bay Area, immigration agents stormed the Mejia's house in 2007. After a passionate fight to stay in the U.S., Sam and Elida are deported back to Guatemala, and leave their two teenage ch[i]ldren in the U.S. This short documentary explores the complexities of the Mejia's new reality: parents living without their children, and children doing their best to succeed without their parents."--Container.
