Summary:
Six people are interviewed anonymously about their experiences coming to the U.S. Each designs a video game character who then tells their story by proxy. This film re-works animations from the Department of Homeland Security, combining them with stories from the border, adventures in the online game World of Warcraft, and journeys via Google Earth to tell a tale of bodies moving through landscapes rendered both familiar and strange.
