Summary
This program follows Manuel, a Mexican migrant worker who cannot reveal his last name. He is just one of millions of Mexicans who illegally cross America's borders every year. It's a dangerous journey, but for most, America offers their best chance for economic survival. The film offers an historical perspective of early Mexican immigration, to the Norwegian immigrants in the Midwest, and to the Irish - covering more than 350 years of American history.
