Juan was only four when his stepfather came into his life. Juan gets so hurt when his stepfather beats his mama when she is too tired to do any work.
The little boy seen here crying, Juan is an immigrant from Mexico. One of the reasons why he wants to leave his hometown is because of his arrogant stepfather who punishs Juan's mom for not working, even if she is weak and tired.
This young man came to US by a train! How insane is that, Kevin?
Juan wants to help his mama by working in the US. If he can earn enough money, his mama and him won't have to deal with poverty anymore.
I miss my family. I hope they're alright.
One of Juan's dream jobs was to work in a construction place and build houses. It is very hard to find a job like that in Mexico, so he decides to head off to the US to find that dream job.
Just like Juan, even if he did make it to the US, most kids aren't old enough to work or provide or survive out here for a long time. Especially when most kids miss their families.
Juan finally reaches the US, but is startled by the people he meets there. Luckily a man named Kevin accepts him and helps him get his dream job.
I wouldn't really call that insane. Most of my people came to the US that way.
Juan realizes that he misses his family more than he wants to complete his dream job. Kevin gives a serious look, as it is his job to protect this young man, so he finds a ship going to Mexico.
If you miss your family that much, then I will help you go back to Mexico.
Juan decides to board a ship going to his hometown, but he finds it difficult to leave this trip behind, so he dares himself to make it to the US when he gets older.
