Torn from Her Arms

The harrowing true story of a mother and daughter, who after fleeing violence in El Salvador, were separated at the U.S. border and detained in detention centers in different states as a part of the Trump Administration's Zero Tolerance Policy. Cindy (Fátima Molina, Who Killed Sara?), and her six-year-old daughter, Ximena (Camila Nuñez), endured inhumane living conditions and inadequate medical care in the facilities, but that was nothing compared to the emotional toll of being apart. Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist ProPublica reporter, Ginger Thompson, (Gloria Reuben, Mr. Robot, ER) broke their story after a whistle blower leaked a gut-wrenching audiotape of six-year-old Ximena crying for her mother. This gained national attention and alerted the nation to the cruelties being committed against undocumented immigrant families at the border. Ginger, along with Texas immigration lawyer, Thelma Garcia (Judy Reyes, Devious Maids, Claws) worked tirelessly to reunite the pair.
