AFTER FOUR PAINFUL YEARS OF US POLICY, FAMILIES ARE FINALLY REUNITING

It was widely condemned as cruel and inhumane. But before the US courts struck it down, Trump's policy of separating children from their parents at the US-Mexico border tore over 5000 children from their parents’ arms. While many children stayed in the US, hundreds of parents were deported.

Four years later some families are only now finding each other again. In a world TV exclusive, this unmissable documentary reports on the fallout of a brutal US immigration policy that tore families apart, tracking the journey of one mother seeking to reunite with her children after four painful years alone.

The family of Honduran mother Keldy Gonzales Brebe who was caught up in a secretive US immigration program run in 2017. Its aim was to deter would-be migrants by separating parents from children. When Keldy crossed the US border into New Mexico in 2017, immigration officials separated her from her two sons, aged 13 and 15.

For four years, Keldy marked time in Mexico. Then, with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), she received the news she'd been waiting for, she could reunite with her boys.

But why did Keldy risk everything to flee her home country? Meet her family and friends on the Caribbean Coast and see first-hand the brutal violence that drove her to run and the lawyer who fought Trump's immigration policy in the courts, now helping to bring families back together.
