Great Movie
9 March 2011 | by NormaStarSee all my reviews

I loved that this movie took a whole different perspective! I come from an immigrant family and never thought of the children that are brought here illegally, without a choice in their own futures. Awesome film! It was also nice to see someone from my own hometown creating such an eloquent film. The movie focuses on a young immigrant from Mexico, Carla, and the struggles she faces when her dreams are devastated due to her status as an undocumented alien in the U.S. Thousands of miles away in India, a young girl named Krupa, runs away from the faults of her past and finds herself forced into a surrogate pregnancy for a family in America.
