Joel is a young man living without documentation in Austin, Texas. Originally from Mexico, he is here to work to pay for medicine to treat his cancer--medicine he cannot afford in Mexico. The film follows Joel for a day; we are with him at a day labor center and he explains his situation, including the 35 months he spent in jail for being caught without documentation.
