Each year, many migrant farmers come to the United States from Mexico to harvest the crops.
Michigan is the one of states where lots of farmers stay and harvest during the Summer. There are lots of camps near the farms in the Northern and Western parts of Michigan, and the condition of their life styles in camps isn't good.
The biggest issue of the migrant farmers is that their children. Because most children are undocumented in the United States, they don't have health insurance and they can't go to the school. Also, when their parents work in the farm, there is no one to take care children. Moreover, some children go to the farm to crop even though they are under age to work.
Some would have an question, "Why we do have to care of them because they are not the U.S citizen," but the people who have this question should think about how we can meet the cheap crops in the market.
There are people who support the migrant children around Michigan, and this film is the story about them and what they are doing during the Summer for migrant children.
