In 2011, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Jose Antonio Vargas revealed he was an undocumented immigrant in the New York Times. In a powerful coming out article he challenges the perceptions of ’illegals’ and exposes the trials of life in citizenship limbo. This film chronicles his experiences from deciding to come out to his transformation into an activist.


We watch as he reconnects with his mother whom he hasn’t seen for 20 years and witness the bittersweet moment when his hard work pays off - an act is passed granting visas to undocumented migrants brought to the US as children – for him to realise that he is 4 months too old to benefit.
