Two youth players on the professional path choose their identity and realize the U.S. soccer field is just as much their home as the Mexican one. This Is Home is an intimate portrait of the lives of Mexican American professional soccer players, Richard Sanchez and Jose Villarreal, comparing their lives and showing the result of the choices they've made in their careers. Through family, club, and country, we explore bigger themes such as cultural identity, immigration, and the idea of transcending nationalities through the unifying sport of soccer.
