You'll receive Play trailer

"[A] 'must-see' for any serious student of immigration, plantation life, and the nature of historical storytelling."
Prof. John P. Rosa, University of Hawai'i at Manoa

Have a family member who's an immigrant? This one hour documentary tells the story of how thousands of people immigrated from Spain to Hawaii and then California. Its star, 98-year old Francisco Pérez, is full of stories and watching the video is, like one person put it, "hearing my grandfather speak again." With shots of Spain, Hawaii and California; with a story supplemented by photos and other people from the Spanish immigrant community; hearing about dealing with the language barrier and the customs of the New World ... this is a story for the 98% of us who are descended from people who braved the odds to make a new life in a new country.
