The American Dream

This short film discribes the journeys that many migrants face trying to escape danger in their homeland. The journeys are perilous even trying to get to the border. This family from Honduras lost their home in a hurricane, then their business to the cartels. They have nothing. They have been walking now for three days, the journey will take a month. They walk in the blistering heat to try and reach the border. The mother is exhausted, she is three months pregnant and has no food or water. They have to be careful not to be caught by the authorities. This is their only hope.
