If you are an undocumented queer immigrant living in the United States amidst this turbulent political climate, you are not safe and your future is at risk. When Moises Serrano was just a baby, his parents risked everything to flee Mexico and make the perilous journey across the desert in search of the American dream. This documentary chronicles Moises’ work as an activist and a voice for his community in North Carolina, while trying to forge a path for his own future. Premiered at 2016 Outfest where it won the Special Programming Award.
