Created for Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, this Emmy-nominated animated documentary short tells the story of 6-year-old Wilson and his mother Tonita, who were detained by US Border Patrol before being separated and held by a private contractor for months. While the two have since been reunited, their immigration status is still in question.

This project included the creation of illustrated assets for the animation and website, with art direction by Michael Schiller, animation by Zachary Medow, and reporting by Aura Bogado.
