An intimate and harrowing portrait of two migrant sisters as they cross the Sonoran desert from Mexico to Arizona in search of the American Dream.
Sisters Lupe and Gabriela Reyes leave behind a life of poverty in hopes of a safe and prosperous future in the United States. They travel through the Sonoran desert with a group of other immigrants led by two coyotes (guides) who will drive them into Arizona.
The truck carrying the sisters and other immigrants is spotted by Border Patrol Agents. A violent and deadly exchange occurs causing the sisters to make a last minute decision to run away instead of be detained.
They continue the perilous journey through the desert on foot and face the harsh realities of what many migrant women experience while attempting to cross through the barren desert in pursuit of their dreams.
