Hundreds of thousands of undocumented Americans are deported from the United States to “their country of origin” every year. What happens to these “non-citizens” after they return to a country they barely know? The short documentary Los Otros profiles three such undocumented individuals as they rebuild their lives in Mexico City. Separated from family and starting all over with nothing, they attempt to forge new lives in the shadow of a broken immigration system and a country not prepared for their return
