After being deported to Mexico, Carmen is forced to survive in a country she doesn't understand anymore. Follow her struggles as she looks for an answer to where she's really from, and which country is truly her home.

Director's Statement

WELCOME BACK is a story of survival through the eyes of a mother. A story of broken families, of finding an answer to "where are am I from?" when the world tells you don't belong anywhere. The film shows the immigration issue from a different perspective. It's the story of someone who just got deported to their "birth-country", Mexico, a place they don't feel it's their home anymore. Through the eyes of Carmen, we see a story of those immigrants that are not "from here" or "from there". A generation that can't find a place to belong in the world. And to belong is an essential need in human nature.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Border, Family, Immigration, Mexican Culture.
