North, south, east, west and … hope. Only a few locals can survive from their work in Tres Valles, once Mexico’s sugar cane capital. Three thousand miles away in the USA, Kansas City has become the main destination for people from Tres Valles looking for work. Along with so many others, Maria Esther and Miguel are caught up in the “transient” existence of the migrant, and since then they have to cope with a life on the edges of legality – always plagued by the question wether to stay or to return.
