La Bestia Every year thousands of immigrants put their lifes at risk to board 'La Bestia' in search of the american dream. 'La Bestia', The Beast, is a train that gets its name from its brutally as it crosses Mexico from Central America to the USA. For many it is their only real chance of crossing the boarder, but it comes at a great price. Riddled with cartels, corrupt police and other dangers, many never make it to the end destination.
This film accompanies five migrants, Francisco, Lupe and the group Maribel, Josue and Oman, through a part of their journey. With leaving their families, friends and home behind, they give us an insight into their hopes and fears.
