Which Way Home

¿Cuál es el camino a casa?

A railway journey into terror, from Mexico and other countries of Central America to the USA, as witnessed through the eyes of unaccompanied children who dream of a better life. Rebecca Cammisa handpicks six young heroes to openly address an issue fudged by her country; the countless people who pluck up courage and pray to be lucky enough to make it to the other side, as well as the conditions under which this nightmarish journey takes place. These kids share their dreams as well as the tricks they pull in order to face all kinds of dangers, fully grasping the magnitude of what is in store for them. Their lives may soon change for the better, but just as easily they may come to end.
