Foregrounds the idealistic vulnerability of the boys at its center, risking everything for a better life they can barely imagine.

Dramatically and pictorially pulls its weight.

Without resorting to any background narration, Which Way Home raises questions about cross-border immigration policies and the macro-economic causes that propel people from struggling countries to stream into developed ones.
Reed Johnson - Los Angeles Times
Investigates illegal immigration and child labor in a very human way. We ride freight trains with teenagers trying to get to the US for a better life. Exceptionally effective verite filmmaking from Rebecca Cammisa.
