It follows immigrant laborers from their countries of origin, to their often perilous journeys. It examines the harsh reality many face in the United States, highlighting the experiences of day laborers, service sector employees, migrant farmworkers, meatpacking and poultry workers, and persons smuggled into the country by criminal syndicates.
