A Daring Journey: From Immigration to Education

About This Episode


Narrated by Peter Coyote, A Daring Journey: From Immigration to Education details the challenges and risks four individuals — Luis B., Sergio Garcia, Janet Robles and Ruben Robles, Sr. — are willing to take as they cross the border from Mexico to the United States in search of the "American Dream."

The film documents their struggles to earn a living in the shadows of our immigration system, as they all seek higher education for themselves and their children. These narratives are a microcosm of the realities that many undocumented individuals experience: working hard to survive without legal status and going on to pursue education in order to address the challenges in their futures.
