HBO and HBO Latino will air these short docs on consecutive nights, starting December 19th. The shorts address gender identity and the constant fear of having a loved one deported. This show is just what the country needs, for people, outside of the Latino community, to see for themselves how some people are affected by the political climate of the country. It is a harsh reality, but a story that needs to be told.
