Diwa's Story

 

Diwa, an undocumented immigrant from the Philippines, risks everything coming to America in order to support her family back home. Like so many of the nameless immigrants who come to this country in search of a better life, Diwa is instead exploited by her employer, then victimized a second time by a broken immigration system.

Our film chronicles the often impossible legal, economic and social barriers faced by immigrants who fall victim to crimes of exploitation.

 

Sadly, this is a true story many times over...
Diwa is a fictional character, but her story is not.
