Fruits of Labor | Official Trailer | POV | PBS

 

A Mexican American teenager dreams of graduating high school, when increased ICE raids in her community threaten to separate her family and force her to become the breadwinner. She works long days in the strawberry fields and the night shift at a food processing factory. Set in an agricultural town on the central coast of California, Fruits of Labor is a lyrical meditation on adolescence, nature and ancestral forces, and coming into one's power as a working young woman of color in the wealthiest nation in the world.
