Wetback - the undocumented documentary
Sinopsis The short documentary follows several immigrants from Central America and Mexico on an extraordinary and extremely dangerous journey to North America. More than 3.000 Latin Americans a day embark upon this journey. Less than 300 make it to their destination. Nayo, Milton, Luis, Oscar and Ana are just some of the thousands of people that will join one of the largest migration movements in history. Their motivation is a life with dignity. Their disadvantage is that neither of them have legal travelling documents.
