Overview

La aterradora historia de un viaje sin regreso...

Cada día, cientos de personas toman incalculables riesgos para cruzar la frontera entre México y Estados Unidos en busca de trabajo y mejores oportunidades de vida. Pero para un grupo de inmigrantes que cruzó la frontera ilegalmente y se subió a un trailer la noche del 13 de mayo del 2003, este sueño se tornó en una tragedia.

Al menos 73 personas abordaron la parte de atrás de un camión que debía llevarlos de Harlingen, Texas hasta la ciudad de Houston, a unas 300 millas de distancia. Pero a las cuatro horas tuvo que detenerse cerca de la ciudad de Victoria, donde se abrieron las puertas del trailer para encontrar que varias personas, incluyendo un niño de 5 años, habían muerto por asfixia, deshidratación y un calor insoportable, y muchos de los sobrevivientes ya habían desaparecido.

Con la pasión y la minuciosidad que lo caracteriza, el periodista Jorge Ramos nos cuenta los detalles de esta desgarradora tragedia, a la vez que busca comprender cómo algo tan inhumano puede suceder en pleno siglo XXI. A través de entrevistas con cuatro sobrevivientes que tuvieron el valor de hablar de su experiencia, conversaciones con los familiares de los difuntos y un exhaustivo análisis del juicio a la persona responsable de esta tragedia y de las implicaciones del incidente en las políticas migratorias estadounidenses, Jorge Ramos relata uno de los episodios más tristes de la historia moderna de este país.
