Deportee is a 1976 dramatic short film written, produced and directed by Sharron Miller. It stars Andrew Stevens, Leslie Paxton, and Sam Gilman.


Deportee tells the story of a young man and his alcoholic father who live in a skid-row hotel while trying to make ends meet. The father longs for the farm they left behind when they came to the city seeking a better life. The young man falls in love with a beautiful but troubled older woman who lives down the hall. Their bittersweet romance proves to be his painful rite-of-passage into adulthood.
