Written by Santa Fe resident, Tencha Avila, and based on a true story, No Number Home tells of a young couple and their daughter living in a migrant worker colony in Colorado in December of 1944. When their recently drafted 18-year-old neighbor, Jesus Rodriguez, deserts from basic training, the colony is invaded by the military police who vow to find him whatever the cost. Residents panic—they are sure that they will all be deported unless someone hands the boy over.

The themes of this historical drama resonate today as loud as ever before.
