David Sutherland’s Marcos Doesn’t Live Here Anymore examines the US immigration system with the help of two unforgettable protagonists, demonstrating the human cost of deportation. Elizabeth Perez, a decorated US Marine veteran living in Cleveland, fights to reunite her family after her husband, Marcos, is deported. Meanwhile, Marcos is alone in Mexico, working as a soccer referee, struggling with depression, and fighting the urge to cross the border illegally to see his family. With the unfiltered intimacy that is his signature, Sutherland weaves a parallel-action love story that takes us into a world often lived in the shadows. When Elizabeth's efforts hit a legal brick wall, she must plan for the unthinkable alternative: leaving the US with her children to live in exile in Mexico. After seven years, Elizabeth, Marcos, and their kids are finally reunited, but they must come to terms with the fact that living together may be even more challenging than living apart.
