Everything the Devil Stole tells the story of Patience and Mohamed, a couple who built a life, paid taxes, and raised a family in West Philadelphia until 2018. For the next two years, they live in involuntary exile, seeking sanctuary in a church due to their undocumented immigrant status. Their story unfolds in the final 15 minutes before they are able to reunite with their children.
