Storyline

Manuel is a legal immigrant working as a janitor in an American middle school. When he sees the principal making unwanted sexual advances towards a female student, he considers reporting the incident. However, his wife Isa tells him to keep quiet because she doesn't have a visa, she needs to stay in the US for medical treatment, and going to the authorities may have the unwanted side effect of getting their family deported. Manuel ponders what is best for his family and what is best for the school children, remembers an incident from his own childhood, and contemplates a very difficult decision. Written by TimeNTide
