“This felt like a true story. James Garcia and the cast do an excellent job of showing the consequences of passing SB 1070 and I connected many events in this heartbreaking and terrifying tale with events I’ve witnessed in Phoenix. A must-see for anyone who cares about Phoenix, its people, and its history.”
