A stunning documentary, filmed over the course of ten days, following four men into the world of illegal border-crossing from Mexico to United States. Alongside Bear, Tiger, Handsome, and Old Man, director Tommy Davis takes a 120 mile cross-desert journey that has been traveled innumerable times by nameless immigrants who – like the four young migrants from Michoacan, Mexico – all had a simple dream for a better life. Fighting dehydration and exhaustion while evading the U.S. Border Patrol through sub-zero temperature darkness of night, filled with barbed wire, brutal storms and the ever-present confrontation with death, they endure unimaginable hardship that is reality for tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who make a similar journey into the United States every year.
