An undocumented immigrant receives a heartwarming yet heartbreaking phone call from his daughter across the border.

Emilio Vazquez Reyes is a 16-year-old High School filmmaker based in Frisco, Texas. With deep love and passion for the art and expression that cinema has to offer, he buried himself into his computer screen by writing scripts and making short camera tests with Super 8, 16mm, and digital cinema cameras. His influences of old foreign cinematic masters mixed with contemporary auteurs deeply encouraged his perspective of the essence of humanity, poetry, and emotion in cinema.

As a second-generation Mexican immigrant, the topic of immigration is and will always be very personal to not only myself but my family as well. Although I personally never experienced much discrimination in my life, the fact that so many others similar to me have to suffer every day is nothing short of sickening. Through the emotional power that cinema holds, I wish to give a voice to those who are silenced. Although you can argue the politics of immigration, you cannot argue about the legitimacy of the torment that immigrants must face. I dedicate this film to the many Hispanic immigrants, whether they're undocumented or not, who have toconstantly endure the brutality of racism and prejudice that scar this nation.
