Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The message of the story is clear: illegal immigrants are victims who will end up being exploited by the rich and powerful.

Con: Beyond the message, there’s no story. The protagonists have no influence on anything that happens; they’re entirely helpless, and they accept their fate meekly.
