Refuge(e) traces the incredible journey of two refugees, Alpha and Zeferino. They each fled violent threats to their lives in their home countries and presented themselves at the US border asking for political asylum, only to be incarcerated in for-profit prison for months on end without having committed any crime. They represent thousands more like them who can’t tell their stories.
