Which Way Home
Which Way Home documents the lives of migrant children who risk their lives to begin anew in the US. Traveling thousands of miles through Central America on the tops of freight trains, many of these children plan to support their families back home by working in the US.
Some, having lived nearly their entire lives on the streets, wish to be adopted by American families. Others already have family in the US with whom they are determined to reunite. Filmmaker Rebecca Cammisa travels along with these children on top of the dangerous trains they call “the beast,” capturing astonishing footage of them at play and in movement against a dramatic Mexican landscape. As they each hurdle toward an unknown fate, the children find strength in a common dream.
