Q & A with filmmakers. Producer Robin Rosenthal, Director Bill Yahraus, and film protagonists Flavio Carranza and Maria Monjaraz
Indigenous teenagers from Mexico strive to change their families’ destinies in the strawberry fields of Oxnard, California. Through a stormy year of sanctioned racism and anti-immigrant policies, their journeys are captured—with help from their own videos—as they navigate cultural identity, parental expectations, economic challenges, and the justice needs of their migrant farmworker community. For young people whose lives have always been lived in the shadows, it takes a tremendous leap of faith to chase a dream.
