Country of Origin – Mexico
Through the migrants look, we will find the impact that have had their life’s, as a result of the lack of opportunities in their countries, the situations that have left behind to achieve a better life quality, having to expose themselves to risks outside their country, such as discrimination, violence, harassment, abuse and even dead. Since in a world in which they live to work, they get as a consequence social and working inequality.
Therefore, the migrants look to move forward in other countries, away from their families, their language and also their own identity to get better life conditions.
Based on their testimonies, the documentary aims to achieve not only to be told their stories, but to know their ups and downs, fears and motivations.
Likewise, the film exposes their stories as object of reflection, since we tend to judge without knowing, so we can improve ourselves as a society, we need to know what happens to others, that in many occasions, the circumstances are not what we imagine.
