Summary
"With intimate access and striking imagery, Sin País (Without Country) explores one family's experience as they are separated by deportation. Sam and Elida Mejia escaped a violent Civil War in Guatemala and came to California. 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
