A 2008 raid conducted by ICE utilized federal agents, multiple helicopters, and spent $5.2 million to arrest 389 workers employed at an Agriprocessors slaughterhouse in Postville, Iowa. Many of these workers were children laborers from Guatemala who came to America looking to support their families. The U-Turn, directed by Luis Argueta, examines the lives of a group of women and children during the eight years after the raid took place.
