“I want to remember this time, last time, and next time. I want to remember it all with no parts missing, because I appreciate even the badtimes.”
In Laredo, a city in southern Texas on the Mexican border, best friends Silvia and Beba know that the long summer nights of their teenage years cannot last forever. Their hang-out spots are so familiar but, stuck in an immigration process over which deportation hangs as a constant possibility, home still seems a fragile concept. Between bars, drive-thrus, friends’ couches and the border wastelands, they confront the stresses of survival, the future, and community building. For them, this means protest action for legal abortion and against border control abuses, in a politically divided America. But the dusty half-light is also a time for poetry and dreams.Their laughter and creative expression cement a sense of solidarity and belonging in togetherness.
