This timely film takes us behind the scenes of the U.S. immigration crisis, focusing on efforts in Nebraska to welcome immigrants and refugees. In 2016, during the world’s largest refugee crisis since World War II, this Midwestern conservative state resettled more refugees per capita than any other state. “Our legacy as a country is to be welcoming, whether you’re liberal or conservative,” one volunteer noted. The remarkable stories of survival and Nebraskans’ hospitality to help them create new lives here and change their own perceptions in the process are both heartfelt and informative. Winner of 2020 Best Indie Spirit – Documentary, at Sedona International Film Festival.
