Between 2 Shores

About This Episode

Between 2 Shores presents the stories of two women, two lives tormented, between two shores. Johanna and Cristina, both natives of the Dominican Republic, left their homeland in search of better lives in Guadeloupe. They found greater opportunities in the French island but were forced to leave their children behind.

Although they have lived in Guadeloupe for years, both women are caught between the two nations: struggling to raise their younger Guadeloupe-born children in their new homeland while also fighting to bring the children they left behind in the Dominican Republic over to Guadeloupe through the process of family reunification. Through the stories of Johanna and Cristina, Between 2 Shores offers viewers a poignant look at the lengths families will go to stay together and at the daily battles faced by many immigrants.
