Radically combining documentary and genre elements, the film follows several members of the close-knit community as they collaborate with the filmmakers to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Bisbee Deportation, where 1,200 immigrant miners were violently taken from their homes by a deputized force, shipped to the desert on cattle cars, and left to die. As the anniversary of Bisbee’s darkest day approaches, locals dress as characters on both sides of the still-polarizing event, staging dramatic re-creations of scenes — including a musical number — from the escalating miners’ strike that led to the Deportation.
