Description:

Which Way Home follows several unaccompanied child migrants as they journey through Mexico en route to the U.S. on a freight train they call "The Beast." Director Rebecca Cammisa tracks the stories of children like Olga and Freddy, nine-year-old Hondurans who are desperately trying to reach their families in Minnesota; Jose, a 10-year-old El Salvadoran who has been abandoned by smugglers and ends up alone in a Mexican detention center; and Kevin, a streetwise 14-year-old Honduran, whose mother hopes that he will reach New York City and send money back to his family. These are stories of hope and courage, disappointment and sorrow. Which Way Home was nominated for a 2010 Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary and received four EMMY nominations.
