Borderline: Crossing the Border, Reaching the Dream

Winner of the 360 Filmmakers Challenge Tell 360 Award – Fall 2016 

From the filmmakers: “We hope that people see that this is one story out of many. We want people to really listen and feel the pain these families go through. We want to make a difference on how people view our race and any race. We want equality for everyone. We want people to stop treating illegal immigrants and their families like they are not human. Because all of us are human, we all have a purpose in this world. We can make this world a better place.”
