Filmmaker Michele Stephenson chronicles the frustrating and poignant saga of some 200,000 Dominicans of Haitian descent who suddenly find themselves stripped of nationality, identity and homeland by a capricious ruling from the Dominican Republic Supreme Court that stripped away their citizenship. That 2013 court decision uncovers the complex history and present-day politics of Haiti and the Dominican Republic as reflected in a grassroots electoral campaign by young attorney Rosa Iris.
