powerful film
3 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film contains the stories of many different families who are affected by the immigration of many Mexicans into the United States. With intimate windows into the lives of the immigrants and those they left behind, this film depicts the difficult complexities intertwined in issues of immigration, U.S. foreign policy and the importance of family structures. From a hesitant son's decision to break away from the family farm, to an abandoned wife's newfound self-sufficiency, this is an eyeopening peek into what immigration really means to immigrants and their families. Anyone with opinions about immigration and international economic policies will learn from this movie.
