What happens when you’re a stranger in your “homeland”? In the new indie film “Hostile Border,” we meet a woman who is caught between two borders and two cultures. Claudia, an undocumented immigrant who was raised in the U.S., is deported to Mexico after committing credit card fraud. She is taken in by her father, a rancher who she hasn’t seen for years.
