Three undocumented teenagers—Moussa (J. Mallory McCree), Sophie (Octavia Chavez-Richmond), and Alyssa (Raquel Castro)—are just about to graduate high school in the Bronx. Like most teenagers, all they want to do is hang with their friends, fall in love, and figure out where to go to college, but unlike their American classmates, these three live with the threat of being discovered by the authorities. When one of their teachers connects them with a lawyer to help them get their papers, the teens start to dig into their family histories to assist their immigration cases. As they continue to deal with the everyday problems of adolescence, the teenagers are forced to confront their past and, at the same time, fight for their future.
From director Matthew Newton (THREE BLIND MICE), FROM NOWHERE premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival to critical and audience acclaim. Opens in NY (Village East) and LA (Laemmle Music Hall) on February 17th.
