Nero lives the American dream. He dreams of citizenship and of a country that would give him a chance. Although he was born in the US, after the attacks on the World Trade Center he was deported to Mexico. In order to be granted the American citizenship, he decides to legally cross the border and join the army. Will it be enough to spare him suspicious glances? Or is he is a victim of a political game?
