Your teaser breaks my heart.

There's just something about

coming from elsewhere, making

a go of things, but always

belonging to another place, which often doesn't even exist anymore. You couldn't be more topical.

—VLH, an immigrant from the former Yugoslavia

Indigenous teenagers from Mexico strive to change their families’ destinies in the strawberry fields of Oxnard, California. Through a stormy year of sanctioned racism and anti-immigrant policies, their journeys are captured—with help from their own videos—as they navigate cultural identity, parental expectations, economic challenges, and the justice needs of their migrant farmworker community. For young people whose lives have always been lived in the shadows, it takes a tremendous leap of faith to chase a dream.
