Sanctuary City

Fleeing government violence in Honduras, Elena and her three children arrive in Trump's U.S.A. unprepared for officially whipped up hysteria and bigotry about immigrants. The family heads for the mid-Atlantic sanctuary city of Dyre and hides from ICE in a sanctuary church. But anti-immigrant fever has reached a dangerous pitch, infecting the police department and the airwaves, as a local, right-wing radio celebrity rails against "hordes of immigrants spewing into the U.S." Sanctuary City is the story of ordinary people caught in the fatal coils of a neo-fascism that bloats itself on racism, political corruption and violence.
