Unsettled follows stories of the four LGBTQ refugees who flee their homelands to the safety of the United States. While Syrian emigrant Subhi becomes a voice for the queer refugee movement, Angolan lesbians Cheyenne and Mari, along with Junior, a gender-nonconforming gay man from the Congo, have a more difficult time navigating the labyrinths of the American bureaucracy.

Director Tom Shepard takes a compassionate look at the American dream as it exists before and after the 2016 elections.
