the injustice lives inside of you
Each year, thousands of Latin American immigrants journey thousands of miles to seek a better life in the United States. They do whatever it takes to get here, some swim with infants across treacherous rivers and drown, some ride atop freight trains called “La Bestia” and fall to their deaths, others dash across busy roadways where they are often struck by cars. A large percentage of illegal immigrants are women and young children. Award-winning screenwriter and director Angela Townsend tracks the stories of immigrants who seek asylum in this country only to be the victims of predators.
