Oscar and Maria Salazar, trapped in Mexico, are denied work visas to return to the U.S. Their plight is further complicated by the birth of a child, Angelina; their other two children, born at Love Orchard, are U.S. citizens. Oscar decides to enter the U.S. illegally. He and Maria, carrying Angelina, skirt death crossing the treacherous Arizona desert. Their hazardous journey is juxtaposed alongside that of Dobbe daughter Karen, a rising star in an arch conservative law firm, her journey hazardous to her moral and emotional well-being. The Salazar family arrives safely at Love Orchard... till ICE raids Love Orchard and orders a Deportation Hearing for the now three-year-old Angelina! The Angelina Salazar case, a definitive microcosm of the U.S. illegal immigrant controversy, is taken all the way to Washington by the reoriented Karen; who, by opting to defend Angelina, befuddles her predatory boss, makes up with her estranged father, and converts her conservative counterpart into her relatively liberal lover. Fighting For Freedom has a healthy dash of political satire, some light and lovely moments along its entertaining way, akin to another such socially conscious, morally infused film, Erin Brockovich.
