Synopsis

Gloria travels from her native Mexico, to join her husband, Victor, on a migrant farmworkers’ camp.

Her arrival on the day of President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration reveals stark contrasts between the American dream and her reality.

 

A series of visits by a liberated, contemporary Virgen de Guadalupe offers Gloria a glimpse of her life and legacy in the context of other presidential eras–Reagan and Trump, and presents a life-altering choice: stay in the United States, and accept her status as a member of the underclass, or abandon the agreed-upon plan and her future family to claim dignity and fulfillment. 

 

There and Back defines the tipping-point of injustice to immigrants mandated by the Trump presidency and offers a human voice to narrate the long American journey there.
