This film combines documentary and scripted elements while following members of the close-knit former mining community of Bisbee, Arizona, as they commemorate the centennial of the forced deportation of immigrant miners. During the Bisbee Deportation, 1,200 immigrants were violently removed from their homes by a deputized force, shipped to the desert on cattle cars & left to die.

Presented by the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice in collaboration with the Princeton Public Library along with POV, the award-winning independent nonfiction film series on PBS.
