This short film is part of World Showcase Shorts Program: One of a Kind.

In the last year, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement conducted the largest raids in modern history at slaughterhouses, arresting and deporting undocumented workers. Despite the danger to herself and her family, former slaughterhouse worker Susana returns to the scene at night to care for animals on their way to the kill floor.
