A young man stuck on the Mexican side of the Mexican/American border must brave an odyssey to return to his love and his soon to be born child.

Roberto is young man who was born in México. At the tender young age of 1 his mother brought him over to the United States, in search of his father. Unsuccessful in their attempt to locate Roberto’s father, his mother decides to raise him in the United States.
Raised in the American culture of South Texas Roberto falls in love with Samantha whom he meets in college. During their time together Samantha gets pregnant. Determined to be a better father than his own was, he seeks work in hopes of providing a better life for his coming child. Due to his illegal status this is a much harder task than originally envisioned.
After a long and arduous search he is finally able to find a job at a warehouse which can pay him “under the table”. As he leaves the warehouse, joyful and ecstatic, the warehouse is raided by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). He is caught and deported back to México.
When he arrives back to México he finds himself to be a fish out of water. Despite his nationality being Mexican, his culture is American.
His Journey begins in his attempt to return to home. The home, which he hopes to return to, is not a nation in itself. His home isn’t a place. His home is what he loves most in the world, Samantha and his soon to be born child.
