Video Description

Paper Children (Niños de papel) | Love brings a family together. Will a system tear them apart?

Every year, tens of thousands of unaccompanied children flee violence in Central America to seek asylum in the US. The journey is never easy-- and once they arrive, there are no guarantees that they’ll be able to stay. Streaming June 25th, Paper Children documents one family’s struggle to build a better future in America despite overwhelming circumstances. Fernando, Jan, China and Mauricio have risked too much to give up hope. Cada año, decenas de miles de niños no acompañados huyen de la violencia en Centroamérica en búsqueda de asilo en EEUU. El camino nunca es fácil y una vez que llegan a su destino, no hay ninguna garantía de que podrán permanecer en el país. Niños de Papel, que se estrena el 25 de junio, documenta la lucha de una familia para construir un mejor futuro en EEUU a pesar de los grandes obstáculos que debe enfrentar. Fernando, Jan, China y Mauricio arriesgaron demasiado para perder la esperanza.
