Summary
  • Follows several migrants from Central America and Mexico on their journey to North America. The film begins in Nicaragua and takes the viewer through five borders. Border control tightens as the migrants move North. Gangs in Mexico and vigilante groups in the USA are some of the perils the migrants might have to face on their way to the American Dream. Features include director interview
  • Also included: Terminal Bar, by Stefan Nadelman ; Where is Iraq?, by Baz Shamoun
  • Perhaps one of the finest portraits ever made of New York City, Terminal Bar looks at the colorful clientele of one of New York's less celebrated watering holes
  • Where is Iraq?: Caught at the Iraqi-Jordanian border soon after the 2003 U.S. invasion, a group of stranded Iraqi men debate war, the dictatorship, and their hopes for their country's future
