Transfusion is a cinema verite documentary that traces taco trucks across the city of Columbus, Ohio, uncovering the complex and contentious circumstances encompassing Mexican cuisine in the United States.

The sum of the parts is greater than the whole -- for the City of Columbus the trucks are more than just about Mexican food, they are about immigration, race, community acceptance, and the exchange of life in the inner city.
