GRINGO DE MEXICO follows KARL WHITEHEAD on his epic journey from normal American teenager to deported Mexican expatriate. Upon attending a campus tour of Arizona State University that turned out to be an ICE sting operation Karl discovered that his parents are illegal immigrants who smuggled him into the United States as an infant. With only his trusty iPhone to navigate the technological wasteland of Mexico, Karl starts a Kickstarter campaign to raise fifty thousand dollars to pay for his legal fees and living expenses until he can return to the land of flat screens and X-Boxes that he loves so much. With no more than a C- in his Freshman Spanish class Karl must reinvent himself in rural Mexico with the help of his many cousins and, the most important thing of all, an Ameri-CAN-DO attitude! SPOILER ALERT – it doesn’t work out well for anyone.
