For many it is their only real chance of crossing the border, but it comes at a great price. Many never make it to the end destination. This film accompanies Francisco, Lupe, Maribel, Josue and Oman, through a part of their journey. With leaving their families, friends and home behind, they give us an insight into their hopes and fears.
