During the morning of July 12, 1917, the mining town of Bisbee, located on the border between Arizona and Mexico, will live its black day ever. 1200 miners, most of them immigrants, paralysed in a strike, struggling for better wages and secure work conditions, are deported. Took in animal transports to the New Mexico desert and left to die. Does the feeling of conflict, justice and union at that time, and that caused the tragedy, have repercussions in the actual community that aims to celebrate that fatidic event for the first time? This is a black page of the American history – erased by the books and silenced by those who have lived it – that the director, Robert Greene, want to show us in this new provocateur documentary.
