Storyline

Six Americans are tasked by a frontier medical examiner with retracing the footsteps of three dead migrants - three of the nearly 6,000 illegal immigrants who perished in the desert in the last 15 years while crossing from Mexico. Gathered at the morgue, the participants are handed three case files and told, "We've given them a name. You must give them a story." The six, from all walks of life, first explore the issue on the U.S. side, embedding with law enforcement and Arizona ranchers angry at the cartels that now control not just the drug trade but the migrant routes as well. Then, split into three groups, they head for Mexico and Central America, learning about the lives of the migrants they've been asked to follow. In a twist, the medical examiner instructs the six to work their way back to the United States alongside real migrants by whatever means necessary ... on river rafts, on foot through gang-controlled jungle and, once regrouped, on top the infamous cargo train known as ...

Amazing Documentary
9 February 2015 | by sarah-235-965368See all my reviews

Wow is all I can say, coming from the UK to USA was hard, the immigration process was difficult and had heard mostly negative perspectives from American people, so I was interested in seeing this show.

nothing prepared me for what I saw, it was simply brilliant how the show was constructed.

It changed my life forever, I am still unable to tell people about the show without becoming emotional.

I wanted to know more.

My husband and I were so moved by this, when we visited family in California, we actually drove to the border at San Diego.

Thank you for doing such an amazing job, I hope that more people will watch it and reach the deeper levels of understanding.
