DEAR HOMELAND tells the story of Mexican singer/songwriter Diana Gameros coming of age in the United States while finding her voice as an artist. Told in large part through her hauntingly beautiful music, her 20-year journey takes her from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico to San Francisco, California, where we watch Diana assert herself as not only a musician but as an immigrant and an advocate for immigrant rights. Through music, she finds the courage to share her own story of being undocumented —channeling her fears and the weight of her separation from her family into powerful songs.
