“Eye-opening and inspiring” —The Hollywood Reporter Special Programming Award for Freedom, Outfest LA
Growing up in North Carolina as an undocumented gay man, Mexican-born Moises Serrano shares his story and advocates for justice and equality in this timely, inspiring documentary. When Serrano was a baby his parents risked everything to flee Mexico in search of the American Dream and, 23 years later, Serrano is still forbidden to live, learn, and love in the country he calls home.
Serrano sees only one option—to fight for justice and equality while activating a national movement. Driven by a deep love for his family, who have come to accept being treated as invisible, the impassioned, eloquent Serrano is proof of how one person can change the world.
