The faces of immigrants to the U. S. have changed over the years. The fear of them, fear of the other, never has. The film documents the influence of the American eugenics and the ideology of race purification and Nordic supremacy on the U.S. immigration policies in the early 20th century. It is composed of eight hundred archival photographs, and narrated by a peasant from Galicia, Austria, who journeyed to America only to be excluded and deported.
