Indivisible

Schedule

Sunday, Nov. 13 at 6:00pm

Providing moving proof that love knows no borders, “Indivisible” chronicles the very real plight of the people at the heart of our nation’s immigration debate. Renata, Evelyn, and Antonio were young children when their parents brought them to the U.S. in search of a better life, and they were teenagers when their mothers, fathers, and siblings were deported. Today, they are known as Dreamers. “Indivisible” takes place at a pivotal moment in their lives, as they fight for a pathway to citizenship and a chance to be reunited with their loved ones. Frustrated with the stalled legislative process, the trio takes matters into their own hands and petition for a special waiver that will allow them to leave the U.S to visit their families and then legally return. With the future of immigration reform uncertain, the three Dreamers do not know if their trips will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience or the beginning of true family reunification.
