Al Jazeera offers a heartbreaking look into lives that have been ripped apart by U.S. immigration policies. With meticulous reporting and careful treatment, the documentary tracks every step of the process, detailing the confusion, cruelty and pain, without slipping into a tone of outrage or blame. Instead, viewers are drawn into the lives of real people faced with impossible choices as they try to flee violence. The three characters linger in viewers’ minds long after the documentary has ended.
