In The Caravan, Yuri and her family travel over 5,000 kilometers with the migrant caravan in their pursuit of a better life for their children in the United States. Donations will be used to cover the cost of an immigration lawyer to assist them in regularizing their legal status.
Yuri and Mike, aged nineteen and twenty, are the protagonists of the documentary. During their childhood, they rarely had the opportunity to leave their city, El Progreso, in Honduras, but still they did not lack maturity to understand the lack of future that awaited, not only them, but also their children in Honduras.
Both directors were studying in Mexico when they heard the news that a migrant caravan of more than seven thousand people had entered Mexico to reach the United States. In Mexico City, they met Yuri, Mike and their son Santi.
Their story captivated them and they decided to accompany them as far as they went. They did it in the closest way: sharing the road, sleeping and waking up together. The determination of the family did not go unnoticed and they decided to start production of THE CARAVAN.
