Since 1996 and 2002 respectively, the United States and Canada conduct a systematic policy of repatriation of all foreign residents who have committed crimes on their soil. These range from violent crimes to simple convictions for driving while intoxicated to petty theft. “Deported” follows for three years these North American offenders as they return to their homeland: Haiti, a country they do not know and a hostile land for them. The film is built around trips between Haiti and North America where their families, who know nothing of their loved ones new life, are no torn with anxiety, blame, and regret.
