What is the meaning of home? At only nine years old, Javier Zamora left his native El Salvador to embark on a 3000-mile journey to reunite with his parents in the United States. Alone except for the other migrants in his group and the "coyote” hired to guide them across the border, he survived perilous trips across oceans and deserts.
Javier Zamora shares his harrowing journey and explores how identity influences our ideas of home, and brings humanity and warmth to the figure of the "immigrant,” stressing there are always moments of joy, love, and hope, even in the worst of circumstances. Zamora puts a face to child immigrants and the humanitarian crisis along the US-Mexico border.
