EN TRANSITO (IN TRANSIT) deals with the realities faced by thousands of Latin American mothers who travel to Europe alone in search of financial stability, and the consequences of the long-distance transnational relationship they establish with their sons and daughters. These are extreme situations which aren’t discussed or known about and will have significant repercussions throughout their lives.
Through the conversation that takes place between these immigrant women and their children, EN TRANSITO (IN TRANSIT) shows us how day-to-day life as a migrant is experienced here, and what conditions are like for those who stay there. A coded exchange where the message sometimes doesn’t get through, is lost, or transformed, and it is vital to know the two realities in order to decipher it.
Passionate, heartrending stories, nonetheless marked by an air of hope for the future.
