Facing deportation, a young man desperately seeks money from a loan 
shark to pay for his fraudulent marriage. Characteristic of many 
immigrants who were displaced from their birth country as young 
children, Camilo’s character holds a dual identity. Connected to 
Colombia through both his mother and community influence, Camilo also 
identifies with Americans through shared lived experience. Fighting 
against deportation to a country he has no memory of, Camilo is faced 
with the question, where is home. In what ways can home be a cultural 
concept, as well as a physical location? Is the government just in 
viewing home solely through the lens of citizenship? How might the 
concept of home change as our world becomes an increasingly global society?
