Girls hanging out

Sisters Bianca and Lorena were just ten and eleven years old when they made the dangerous trip across the US-Mexico border.  They settled in Oregon with their mother so they could have everything that she did not: a life beyond marriage, better education, more career choices.  Now, as they approach high school graduation, they have important decisions to make.  But in the turbulent US sociopolitical climate, amid strong opinions about immigration and “illegal aliens,” will it even be possible for the girls to realize the potential that lies within them?
