Synopsis
From September 2001 to April 2002, Nan and Nancy, along with other Latino women, cleaned  in Manhattan for the asbestos company 'Branch' in the hermetically sealed zone of 'Ground Zero.' The women had neither work or residence permits in the United States, and their protective masks did not have asbestos filters. At the Ped-West border crossing in Tijuana, Mexico, refugees perform their narratives. They play asbestos workers, US soldiers, Red Cross helpers and firefighters. They are migrants from Guatemala and Venezuela and Mexicans who were deported from the USA to Tijuana. They are all stuck at the border due to the 'Remain in Mexico' policy. Slowly, the film shifts images from New York to Tijuana.
