Summary
"On a small plot of land in Mexico, a young boy and his sister run and play in the fields while their mother and father farm. All this changes, though, when the men of the village, including the boy's father, are forced to seek work north of the border, in the United States. Left alone with no way to make a living, the boy's mother decides that the family must make the dangerous journey across the border in search of both work and the boy's father"--Blurb from accompanying sheet
