Community Foundation Theater, Gund Gallery

High School seniors Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo are eager to go to college and pursue their education. However, their home state of Georgia deems them ineligible for in-state tuition at public colleges due to their immigration status as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients. In response, these three ambitious students fight for education in the undocumented community.

After the film, a discussion will be led by Jacky Neri Arias, Assistant Director ODEI, Clara Roman-Odio, Professor of Spanish, and Rodrigo Avila-Hernandez ’21.
