This film describes the war in El Salvador and the plight of its people who flee persecution and death only to be denied sanctuary under the U.S. Refugee Act. The refugees' struggle for a safe haven in the U.S., in the face of a contradictory and indifferent refugee policy, is brought into sharp historical perspective by examining U.S. immigration policy toward Jewish refugees during World War II.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape,
Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to
be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad,
which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
