Quartering Act

Colette, the mother of a fallen Resistance fighter, struggles to come to terms with the death of her son. When two desperate German deserters led by a commanding ex-officer invade her home in the dead of night, she comes face-to-face with her own demons.


Samuel Manzi, a young refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo, recounts the story of how he met Soleil, the love of his life. Sam describes how growing up in a war zone led him to meet Soleil, how they were torn apart when Sam came to the UC, and what it’s been like trying to live without her for the past nine years.


Cristina works several jobs and lives a meager existence to save money for her family in South America. But just because she in in the US doesn’t mean she is part of it. One sunny morning, after having reached her savings goal, Cristina heads to a local bank to wire transfer the money to her mother. But when the bank teller hands her a receipt accounting for only half of her deposit, Cristina’s belief in the American Dream is put to the test.
