When Zell Preston inherits her father’s struggling pecan farm and moves back to her childhood home on the border of New Mexico, she finds that the once tight-knit community is now split by culture, law, visible and invisible boundaries. The government has cracked down on the undocumented immigrant population, dividing families and pitting neighbor against neighbor. Zell’s high school sweetheart, Carl Zelaya, defends his choice to work for the Border Patrol to his family and friends. A premiere at the 2010 Humana Festival of New American Plays, this very moving and challenging new work is a personal drama about very big issues.
