A journey through Brownsville, Texas on the 4th of July, introducing a community divided by the US border fence.
While local residents prepare for the 4th of July parade, picnics, and fireworks, they reflect on their frustrations with the fence, discussing the many repercussions it has on their safety, property rights, families and freedom, as well as what the fence means for America.
Evocative images of the fence and personal stories provide a unique perspective to the current political debate about US border security. Despite the harm that the border fence has caused them, the people of Brownsville, many of them
military veterans with Mexican roots, celebrate Independence Day proudly.
