Gripping account of an undocumented immigrant who have always embraced everything American from the time he was 12 and yet has the fear of being deported anytime.  This is Jose Vargsas' story as well as of the rest of the undocumented immigrants from Mexico, Germany, India and other countries. There are scenes that I can strongly relate to as Pinoy,  those scenes that were shot in the Philippines and during the interviews with Jose's estranged mother. This admirable young man who was a diligent student and later a multi-awarded journalist has a wide gaping hole in his heart; an intense longing for the mother left behind as well as the intense longing to be finally called a legal and documented citizen of America. Engrossing and inspirational, too!
