Providing a human context to a fraught political issue, Zero Tolerance offers the first-person stories on the harrowing journeys of two desperate families who come to the U.S. legally to flee persecution.

Arriving at the surge of politics endorsing hate and torturous tactics toward asylum seekers, the Fuentes and Hernandez Families run into the arms of officers who have silently taken orders to separate children and accusing their parents of trafficking. These acts purposely inflict irreparable mental trauma to the most vulnerable.

Will the children be reunified with their parents? How does their trauma manifest? After all adversaries, will they be granted asylum or sent back to gang-infested El Salvador which is known for killing people who have tried to escape?
