Film Directed by: Ralph Isenberg, Joe De La Fuente (Genre: Documentary, Feature)

"SYNOPIS OF “FOUR MOTHERLESS CHILDREN” ©/®/™

This film continues where the “Discovery of Santos”; the second documentary in the “El Gringo Schindler” series left off.

The mother broke no immigration law but simply read an immigration form wrong. The fact that the mother had already been in the United States for seventeen years under “Temporary Protected Status” and her renewal for an additional year was already approved was completely ignored by the United States Government.

Three of the four minor children had flown with their mother to El Salvador to attend to their grandma who had suffered a serious heart-attack. Little did anyone expect that on the day of return to the United States, the three children would be forced to fly to the United States ....."

Tuğba faces the pandemic unexpectedly, like everyone else, and the curfew which is linked to it. Normally, loneliness was an option or a situation she actually longed for, because of her busy career. Now, it has become inevitable. If you were to ask Tuğba, she is sure what she would do if she found herself to be alone. In reality, she is shattered once she really is alone.

Everything has turned inside out.

Maybe this is the first time she has had the opportunity to listen to herself. The longer the lock down lasts, the longer the listening state turns into a process. While the pieces coming out of her form the whole that defends and creates Tuğba, now these, as a crowd, try to destroy each other........"
