Migrating is one of the most important decisions a person can make. It implies abandoning the previous sowing, and perhaps the first harvest, to embrace a new land, full of possibilities. Whoever emigrates starts from zero and sharpens his learning process and personal growth. This process, so loaded with desires, modifies the human experience, enriches it, transforms it.In this video we will listen to the testimony of six Hispanic American immigrants who are reborn every day in the United States. How have their lives changed since they set foot in the Northlands? How has the United States changed their vision of the world and their desires? What have they gained in this process? What have they lost? Are their personalities the same or different? What do they keep from their cultural heritage? What new customs have they added to their repertoire? What would their ancestors think about this transformation? Join us on this intimate and personal journey of human transformation, where the metamorphosis of the immigrant unfolds.
