When ICE raids the Diaz family home on Thanksgiving, Mother Marisol is arrested and locked up in detention, son Koke is deported to Mexico, and Father Jorge flees for protective sanctuary in a local synagogue. The two American-born children, young attorney Emiliano and his teen sister Valentina (while also managing her epilepsy), race to do whatever they can to reunite the family while their parents and brother do what they must to get home.


“America’s Family is proof of something we need more of in modern cinema.”

“An important call for change and respect.”
— Sabina Dana Plasse, Film Threat
