Thousands of people of Haitian descent live in the Dominican Republic without government acknowledged citizenship. As a result, they lack access to basic services such as education and healthcare. This short documentary features testimonies from deportees and victims of anti-Haitian policy, calling for a unified response from people in the Haitian and Dominican Diaspora.
