This feature length documentary presents the experience of four men who travel to live and work in the United States, driven by disasters or pulled by their dreams.
A Venezuelan political refugee fleeing urban Maracaibo learns how to be a cowboy in rural Arizona. An undocumented Boliviano fights to support his children's education in Washington DC. A Salvadorean deportee makes a desperate attempt to rejoin his family in New York. A scrappy entrepreneur with no high school degree leaves Mexico's Distrito Federal to cross into the US for a third time as drastic policy change looms.
“Both dreams and disasters expel us to this place."
Long after leaving home and deserts and mountains behind, William, Jhonny, Geovani, and Alejandro discover that their journey is not only geographical but deeply spiritual and psychological, requiring unimagined compromise and heavy sacrifice.
“What is the acceptable offering? The true devotion that opens the way so that we might live, and not be lost?"
