Abstract:

"For guidance northward, illegal immigrants from Latin America frequently enlist mercenary escorts known as 'coyotes'. This program examines one such charming and unseemly figure and the three Guatemalans who have placed their trust in him. Viewers follow the nervous foursome through checkpoints and river crossings as they employ unreliable forged documents and take on false identities-- while facing physical danger and the constant threat of deportation. Ultimately, the film echoes the heady and traumatic experiences known to millions of undocumented immigrants-- especially since only one of the protagonists gains any tangible success from the journey"--Container.
