Twelve-year-old Itan’s promising life in San Francisco is turned upside down when she comes home from school, with her younger brother, to find her apartment ransacked and her mother missing. Suddenly she must rely on her estranged uncle, a big rig truck driver. Itan manipulates him into taking them across the country in his truck, trying to find her mother and stop her deportation.

Featuring an esteemed cast which includes Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera), who “exudes charisma” (Salon), Izabella Alvarez (Westworld), who “commands each desperation-ridden scene … a remarkable turn.” (LA Times) and Ana de la Reguera (Narcos, Nacho Libre), who “proves a haunting presence” (AWFJ Women On Film), COLLISIONS has earned thirteen film festival awards, including the Audience Award at the Mill Valley Film Festival. This “sensitively portrayed, moving story” (San Francisco Examiner) reveals the devastating impact of U.S. immigration policy on one family when the mother is detained by ICE.
