Sometimes poor people, risking their very lives, leave everything behind in an attempt to survive, to live elsewhere. But theyre not wanted elsewhere. And if they are wanted its for their manpower. In jobs that no one wants to work. In this particular film, elsewhere is the USA, and the poor are mostly Mexicans. For years, they passed through San Diego. But the border police, using cutting edge technologies invented during the war in Vietnam and which came to fruition during the Gulf War, have managed to quell the flow of illegals in this part of California, deporting them to the desert and mountain regions of Arizona. They figured that the hardships and dangers, the cold and the heat would stop them altogether, but you cant stop someone whos hungry.
