Persiguiendo El Sueño Americano

This documentary is a real look into the two stories of women who came to America in search of the American dream despite all the struggles and challenges they face, especially the legal ones. They share their hopes and dreams for their children as they try to combat the current negative climate they face being immigrants. All they want is a better life for their family.
