Description:

No documents. No fear. They are called "Dreamers." They arrived in the United States illegally when they were minors, the majority being from Mexico, and they are the object of a legal initiative entitled the Dream Act, that seeks a judicial solution to their status, but it has not been approved by the US Senate. Dreamers have access to basic education, but they cannot obtain the necessary financing to pursue their career goals. When they reach legal age, they run the risk of being deported to their native countries, and sometimes they do not even know where that is. Their political activism has caused public opinion to revisit the meaning of "national identity." These are their stories.
