Description Documentary film.
Summary A poetic short featuring the voice of an undocumented young Latina woman who was brought to the U.S. as a child. The film introduces viewers to a personal voice on the immigration debate: DACA, the Dream Act, and other immigration reform, speaking about what it's like to grow up and face an uncertain future as a young undocumented person in America. Because she doesn't want to appear on camera, found footage from American culture illuminates the anonymous woman's voice as she travels between despair and determination, struggling with her new identity and the reality that going to college will be very difficult without financial aid, and the uncertainty of her future when she can't legally drive, work or reside in what she considers to be her home country of the United States.
Note Close captioned in English and Spanish.
