Looking for a life in the United States, five devoted family men cross the U.S. border inside a boxcar. Set in Texas, this moving story unfolds as one of the men recounts the perilous journey to an immigration guard, who is Latino and struggles between his duties as a Federal Official and his conscience as a son of immigrants. Inspired by a true story and winner of the MetLife Nuestras Voces Playwriting Competition. Directed by René Buch - the acclaimed and beloved theater director, co-founder and artistic director of Repertorio Español.

“Thought-provoking issues sit alongside humor. The passion of the five immigrants
transcends language; their longing for their destination is palpable in their physicality.”
– Backstage

“…a moving snapshot from the front lines…
an elegantly designed and fiercely acted Repertorio production.”
– The Village Voice
