A short documentary about the Winter 2015 California-Mexico Dreamers Study Abroad Program. The documentary reflects the life-changing experiences of 30 undocumented students (DREAMERs), who had the opportunity to visit their country of birth Mexico, for the first time in over 20 years, and reconnect with their families and roots. They were able to fly to Mexico and come back to the U.S. through a special USCIS permit called Advance Parole.

Un documental sobre las experiencias que 30 estudiantes DACA-mentados experimentaron al regresar a su país natal Mexico por medio del programa California-Mexico Dreamers Study Abroad.
