Pierce College Presents - A ONE BOOK ONE CAMPUS EVENT - Movie Screening : 

This film takes viewers along on freight trains with children from Mexico and Central America who are trying to get across the U.S. border and to a better life. The camera captures children begging for food, hopping the trains, and clinging to the tops of their dangerous rides. Their guileless recounting of how they came to be riding "The Beast" and what they hope for makes this an exceptional program. The risks of this activity are highlighted through the introduction of a young woman who lost her legs and a family that receives a coffin bearing the decomposed remains of a son who died on the trip. The film offers no solution but illustrates with each frame that finding one is crucial.
