All We Carry


After fleeing violence in Honduras, joining the infamous migrant caravan, and enduring months in a U.S. detention center, the young Lopez-Aldana family is sponsored by a synagogue in Seattle. While struggling to settle into a totally foreign world and processing their trauma, their future—and the future of asylum in America—hangs in the balance.
