Is the American Dream a nightmare?

A former pageant queen, who has lost her house, believes the path to American salvation runs through Donald Trump while two brothers attempt to return to the U.S. after being deported. These dissimilar lives, presented in parallel, reveal surprisingly similar challenges for both Mexicans and Americans. Will they find answers to the most difficult questions about immigration, national identity, and perhaps the most troubling of all – who belongs where in these United States? Told through intimate moments and dynamic interchanges, Hermanos examines family relationships, new economic realities, and questions of religion and politics. – Chris Garcia
