Detained in the Desert
Set in Arizona's mystical desert amidst the hateful anti-immigrant environment, this riveting drama explores how we, as humans can reach across our political stances, and come to love one another.
Meet Sandi, young and full of possibilities as she takes her boyfriend Matt to meet her parents in California. She has a love of literature and music, but doesn't care much about politics. As a young Mexican-American, she "passed" as a white girl, and used that to survive.
Meet Lou, a sharp-witted radio show host with a cult following of people who love America and all it stands for--except immigrants. Lou is in love with the act of debate. But he doesnt love changing his mind. And so, he might need more than intellectual convincing.
Meet Ernesto, Milagros, and a mysterious man from the desert. They have plans to change the world. One by one.
What would happen if we put all of these characters in the same place?
