A tale of hard working Columbian sugar cane workers trying to save their home. I personally know undocumented Columbian immigrants that came to the USA and studied at our universities to escape from this kind of incredible poverty. And now we have a president who says these kinds of people are criminals trying to take away jobs from hard-working Americans and they must be arrested in the night and be sent back to their poverty stricken lives.

I was shocked by what I learned of the sugar cane industry. I felt for this family and their struggles. This is an eye opener rather than a feel good movie.
