Family man Miguel Cortes could be forced to leave the country in four months as a result of his immigration status. In exchange for Miguel agreeing to leave the country voluntarily and paying a $5,000 bond, an immigration judge offers him 120 days to get his affairs in order before leaving his wife and two daughters in the United States to continue their education. Miguel has 120 Days to work hard, save money and weigh his options about returning to Mexico alone, or risk changing his name and disappearing back into another U.S. city illegally to keep his family together.

120 Days cuenta la historia de Miguel Cortés, quien estaba indocumentado en Raleigh y tras ser detenido por una 'infracción de tráfico' le dieron 120 días para salir de los Estados Unidos. Es una historia increíble sobre la naturaleza de ser indocumentado y las difíciles decisiones que enfrentan las familias que viven aquí sin papeles. Es fenomenal y yo podría venir y hacer una proyección en clase. Duración 80 minutos
