Animated documentary  about three stories about  three people on either side of the US/Mexico border told in three different animated styles.  We get the story of two sisters one studying to be a doctor and the other a baker; There is the story of an activist looking to help families, and finally there is story of young man who was deported and is now an artist and activist.

This is a good film which I honestly like more than I love. This isn’t to say there is anything bad about the film, rather it never quite generates enough emotion for us to fully connect. I think part of the problem is the differing animation styles which never allow us to settle into one place emotionally. Yes I like the people telling their stories, but I never fully felt connected. I kind of felt I was watching PSA rather than film.

Worth a look for those interested
