THE STORY

 

After a politician reverses his promise of U.S. citizenship, a refugee hacker chases his last hope of achieving the American dream on the eve of deportation.  

 

 

Americano tells the story of Isaac, a Syrian immigrant and hacker, who is desperately working to become an American citizen--a chance at a new life coming from his ravaged home leveled by civil war. Hollester, a demagogue politician running for Pennsylvania governor and inspiring radical followers, offers Isaac that chance if he performs a hack on Billie--his campaign director who he fears is leaking information to the media.  Everything comes apart as Hollester's true motive is revealed.

Unexpected alliances are formed and a guardian of 250-year-old promise takes a side.
