A short documentary film about freedom in captivity

About the Film

Hilda fled Guatemala in fear for her life and the life of her young son Ivan. When she made it to America to ask for asylum, she thought she'd be safe. Instead, they locked her up and ordered her sent home. Now, Hilda and Ivan have taken sanctuary in a church near Austin, TX. It's one of the few places ICE won't go, but for how long?
