    • Alejandro Mercado decided that in order for him to have a better life and support his family, he had to leave Mexico and head north. He acquired fake passports in 1971 and was promised they’d work. His wife Severa and three-month-old daughter crossed the border without any fuss. When Alejandro walked up with his passport in hand, the Immigration officers noticed it was fake. In result, they sent him away to the farthest city south of Mexico, Campeche. Alejandro, now separated from the two people he cares about the most, must journey back to them.
