Until World War II, Latino immigration to the United States was overwhelmingly Mexican-American. Now three new waves bring large-scale immigration from Puerto Rico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic. Films like West Side Story, etched the stereotype of the knife-wielding Puerto Rican in the American consciousness, fueling hatred and discrimination. Follow the story of seven immigrants seeking a new life in the United States, the discrimination they faced, and their fight for recognition.
