So happy this movie was made. Hopefully it will help some see beyond the word illegal and better understand the tragedy of separated families, uncertainty about tomorrow, abuse by those who have the power, all for a better life.

My wife and I enjoyed the movie. Although the actors weren't known, they really did a fantastic job acting out the everyday of Mexican and Mexican Americans living in America.You could probably take your teenagers .

This movie brings to the table the complex situation many families are in. I thought it was believable. I feel everyone should see this movie since this topic is very much current and brings the dynamics of a not so easy solution.
