Based on conversations and interviews from the South Bronx housing projects courtyards, Refugee Safe Houses on the Northern Border with Canada, and travels along the Southwestern Border and into Mexico. Eleven monologues of people who live on or across borders both geographic and cultural, an intimate, raw, poignant, funny look at the borders we all negotiate in our everyday lives.
