Leo and Emma, a newlywed couple from a small town in Mexico, have made the decision of a lifetime. They are coming to America. But when they arrive, they wonder if the American Dream was everything they hoped that it would be.
Fernando Rodriguez directed, wrote, edited, produced and did the cinematography for this movie, which really shows the journey that immigants have to take to try to better their lives in America, even if they have to do it illegally.
It’s one thing for them to attempt to make this new life on their own, but when they have to consider their daughter Luciana, as well as living in a place with no family, friends or support, they wonder if they’ve made the right choice.
At under an hour, Por Mi Hija let me explore a life I wouldn’t be able to see otherwise. That’s about all you can ask from a film.
