Lionell has been an undocumented immigrant in the US for over 20 years and like many children who was brought here at a young age, calls America his home. He faces a 10-year sanction upon returning to the US if he ever leaves the country.

In this collection of work, Lionell recollects memories from his early childhood. Most of what he remembers is vague and fragmented, creating somewhat surreal and curious landscapes.
