His family may be deported, but all he wanted was a better life

Out Of The Shadows

"Out Of The Shadows" is about a graduating high school student in Los Angeles selected for the green card lottery, but faces opposition in proceeding with the visa application. Not only does he lack the essential documents, he knows his family relishes their lives and thrives on their illegal immigrant status. As he develops a budding relationship with a female neighbor, he is further conflicted in the difficult choice between following the footsteps of his elder brother and facing a life of mediocrity, or daring to pursue his citizenship, which may lead to the deportation of his family.
