Since that day over 600 copies of the DVD have been distributed to churches, schools, and individuals who hope to use the film and its discussion guide in future dialogues on immigration reform. It is hoped that audiences will grow in understanding and compassion as they listen to the struggles and hopes of the immigrants. How this will translate into positive action is yet to be seen. The details of immigration reform are still to be determined by our legislators. However, much can be done to bring about changes that will reflect the values of the past and provide opportunities for all peoples seeking a better life for themselves and their children.
