Genres:

Metadata:
The shocking hate -based attempted murders of two Mexican day laborers catapult a small Long Island town into national headlines, unmasking a new front line in the border wars: suburbia. For nearly a year, Carlos Sandoval and Catherine Tambini lived and worked in Farmingville, New York, so they could capture firsthand the stories of residents, day laborers, and activists on all sides of the debate. More than a story about illegal immigration, this timely and powerful film ultimately challenges viewers to ask what the American dream really means.
