Summary:
Summer, 2001: Secret negotiations between the governments of the U.S. and Mexico break into front page news, igniting a national debate over immigration. The moment seems like an incredible alignment of the stars, as advocates maneuver politicians to move further and faster. Then 9/11 attacks shatter those hopes. But around the country, the issue lingers into November's local elections. A heated city council race in Iowa tells a personal story about political engagement in difficult times, and previews the battle to come.
