Raul Ramos y SanchesAfter years of anti-immigrant backlash and a deep recession, anger seethes in the nation's Latino communities. When a young Latina bystander is accidentally killed by undercover detectives in a botched drug bust, riots erupt throughout the Southwest. In exploiting the turmoil officials quarantine the Latin community and force them into detention centers.  Amid the chaos, Manolo Suarez falls among an activist group and must find where his loyalties lie between country, culture, justice, and family as the nation is pushed to the brink of civil war. Musical performance will be included provided by Max Vasquez & Friends.
