Storyboard Text

  • El Cristo Rey
  • I dont know if i should go to El Norte. Please help me decide?
  • Silao
  • That guy looks suspicious, I must closely watch him.
  • Mazatlan
  • Hi my name is Victor. Do you think you could help me cross the border?
  • Sure! By the way, my name is Julio.
  • El Cristo Rey is important to Victor's journey because it is where Victor went to pray to see if he should go to El Norte or not. He prayed and his answer came easy, a priest gave Victor bus money. This is the second time he has received money from a priest, the first was when Victor's father was robbed and the priest felt badly. Victor used this as a sign to leave on his journey.
  • Nogales
  • ZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Silao is important to Victor's journey because it is where Victor spots Miguel, who later becomes important in his journey. Miguel seems really scary to Victor because he has a lazy eye and isn't sociable. Victor and Miguel don't converse until they meet up again in Nogales.
  • Baboquivari Canyon
  • C'mon Victor, think about the reason you're living for!
  • Mazatlan is important to Victor's journey because here Victor finds someone who leaves a big impact on him, Julio. Julio is the same age as Victor but has already crossed the wire. Julio is crossing the wire for the same reason as Victor, to make and send money home to his family. Victor uses his street smarts and Julio's knowledge of the border to make it to Nogales.
  • Dayton's Bus Stop
  • Bye, Rico! I will miss you. Make sure you take care of you parents and tell my mom the check came.
  • Nogales is important to Victor because he meets up with Rico. He sees how Rico doesn't make mature decisions, for example, Rico doesn't save his money and lost his backpack for trying to cross through a tunnel. Since Rico is using his own money, Victor can't say anything, but Victor wants to help Rico.
  • Baboquivari Canyon is important to Victor because it's where Victor really realizes the reason he is crossing the border. He becomes stronger mentally and physically.although, Rico realizes that he chooses to take care of his parents as well as they do. He wants to go to school, live with his family, and take care of his parents.
  • Dayton, Washington is important to Victor because he says goodbye to his best friend for the second and last time. Rico finally decides to leave back to Los Arboles to live with his mother and father. This makes Victor sad, but he realizes it is for the best because Rico isn't made out to work in the fields and because Rico needs to take care of his parents. The best thing for Rico is to go home and take care of his parents.
