LONG GONE BY Red Carpet Interview of Erica Muñoz & Izzy Hau’ula

By Gregg W. Morris – The lives of Ana Alvarez, a single Nicaraguan mother living and working hard in Warsaw, Indiana, and her teenage daughter, Izzy, also working hard as well as going to school and getting great grades, are disrupted because of the cruel fate of a routine check that leads to a deportation order for mom – but not for her daughter, who has just been accepted to Indiana University. The sacrifices and risks that Mom takes risks to help her daughter realize her dreams before she is deported will make many in the audience cringe.
