This documentary features members of Mexicanos en Exilio and Carlos Spector as they share with us memories of Mexico and the reality now in the United States. Although many of these memories involve the loss of loved ones, Carlos Spector understands the need to hold on to these memories. These are the stories of people that refuse to allow the Mexican government to remain unpunished for these crimes.

Mexicanos en Exilio is a non-profit organization that was formed in 2008 as thousands of Mexicans began to flee their homes after the militarization throughout the state of Chihuahua under President Calderon . The organization is made up of activists, political leaders and journalists with the legal representation of Carlos Spector. Throughout the years, they have continued to denounce the corruption and impunity that still exists in Mexico. At the same time, they continue to search for justice for the crimes committed against their families.
