On the streets of Guatemala City, gang members were Edgar’s only family.
But he dreamed of a different future.
To leave the gang was a death sentence.
Coming to the USA was his last hope.

Houses on the Moon presents the acclaimed documentary play, De Novo, as a part of the inaugural season of Next Door at NYTW.

Crafted entirely from immigration court transcripts, interviews and letters, De Novo tells the true story of Edgar Chocoy, a teenaged boy from Guatemala who faced deportation after fleeing to the U.S. in order to escape the gang MS-13.

Edgar travels over 3,000 miles, across the borders of three countries, in search of his mother and a better life in the United States. Detained by the Department of Homeland Security, he pleads with a Colorado judge to grant him asylum and not deport him back to Guatemala where the gang was awaiting his return. “If I go back, they’ll kill me.”

De Novo stars Camilo Almonacid, Zuleyma Guevara, Manny Ureña, and Emily Joy Weiner
