When undocumented Latinx mothers Jeanette and Ingrid face deportation and separation from their young children– they courageously enter local churches to find refuge from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) while keeping their families together. Over five years, they must face the constant threat of ICE raids while fighting for their legal status and inspiring allies in the predominantly white faith communities. Through an intimate lens, the film showcases the unwavering strength, love, and sacrifice of these mothers, who risk everything to keep their families together in the country they call home. Si Pudiera Quedarme is a call to action and a timely reminder of the transformation that can occur when communities work together for justice.
