I first learned about the plight of child migrant farmworkers in the U.S. from an article written by Human Rights Watch, and it inspired me to tell their story. For more info, please visit: ErinLi.com/To-the-Bone/

Synopsis: A pre-teen migrant farmworker attempts to rebel against the status quo with unintended consequences for herself and her family. Both a coming-of-age story and a window into the world of child migrant farmworkers in the U.S., TO THE BONE is an intimate film about one family that represents the struggles of so many.
