Hundreds were arrested in a a 2008 immigration raid on a meat processing plant in Postville, Iowa.  A small group who were waiting for their deportation proceedings decided to tell their story on stage.  Growing up in poverty, crossing the US-Mexico border, and being arrested and sent from prison to prison are all part of the play they wrote and performed all over the mid-west.
