"FOUR MOTHERLESS CHILDREN"
RALPH ISENBERG
Series: DOCUMENTARY, AGES 12-18
Description - This film continues where the "Discovery of Santos"; the second documentary in the "El Gringo Schindler" series left off. The third movie tells the heartbreaking story of four children, all minors and citizens of the United States, forced to fend for themselves for eleven months while their mother found herself exiled in El Salvador for making a simple human error. The mother broke no immigration law but simply read an immigration form wrong. The fact that the mother had already been in the United States for seventeen years under "Temporary Protected Status" and her renewal for an additional year was already approved was completely ignored by the United States Government.

Three of the four minor children had flown with their mother to El Salvador to attend to their grandma who had suffered a serious heart-attack. Little did anyone expect that on the day of return to the United States, the three children would be forced to fly to the United States, as unescorted minors. Their mother was left behind, in total disbelief, not knowing how she was going to get back to the United States. The error made by the mother was simple and could have easily been fixed in El Salvador by the United States Government with a phone call. Instead, an odyssey that would last nearly eleven months was about to play out. The children endured living alone until they heard about the work of the "El Gringo Schindler" on television and made their way to his office on a Saturday, not knowing if the "El Gringo Schindler" would even be in his office. The children knew better than to skip school during the week when the "El Gringo Schindler" and his staff would be available to help. By some miracle, the "El Gringo Schindler" just happened to be in his office for a few minutes when the children arrived. Upon hearing the story of the children, the "El Gringo Schindler" made a pledge to the children that he would get their mom home no matter what it took. At the time, the "El Gringo Schindler" had no idea that his efforts would test every bit of knowledge he possessed about immigration and put his own personal safety in jeopardy to deliver his promise on New Year's Day, 2016.

The "El Gringo Schindler" began a daring rescue trip to El Salvador a few days before New Year's Day. The story of the rescue leaves most people who learn of it speechless. Few people have the knowledge and courage to endure what the "El Gringo Schindler" went through. The trip would prove to be one hundred times harder than the first rescue trip he made in May of 2015; to rescue Alexis Marroquin and reunite him with his family in the United States. The second trip found the "El Gringo Schindler" cutoff from most of the government offices of both El Salvador and the United States because of the holidays. The "El Gringo Schindler" was dealing with staff that refused to make simple decisions; despite the fact that he found himself trapped in a gang infested area. What ended up being a "James Bond" type action on New Year's Day enabled the "El Gringo Schindler" to reunite mother and children. The movie gives detailed glimpses into the events of that day without telling exactly what happened. The actual events remain highly classified. In the end, the excitement of the reunion provides proof positive that the work of the "El Gringo Schindler" is justified and truly an act of humanity.

The movie will run approximately 53 minutes in length and is a departure from the previous "El Gringo Schindler" series documentary style movies. This movie is filmed with reenactments and actual footage whenever possible. The use of "voice over" is also introduced into the film. Nearly ninety percent of reenactments are filmed by the actual participants. While appearing to be a drama movie; the film is a true documentary that will run for approximately 43 minutes. The film was made in both the United States and El Salvador. "a RALPH ISENBERG PRODUCTION" is pleased to announce the fourth movie in the "El Gringo Schindler" is already in production. The movie is entitled "The Bread-maker and the Police Woman / La m�quina y la Mujer de la Polic�a. Plans call for the release of this film before the end of the year. Two other movies in the series are also being planned at this time.
