Publisher's Description

Destino, meaning “destination” or “destiny” in Spanish, tells the story of undocumented Central American migrants and their perilous journey by freight train across Mexico, as they attempt to enter the United States in pursuit of a better life.

In Destino Michelle Frankfurter seeks to capture the experience of people who struggle to control their own destiny when confronted by extreme circumstances. Destino is both a social commentary on one of the biggest global issues of our times and an epic adventure tale. It conveys the experience of a generation of exiles, driven by poverty and the dysfunction of failed states, traveling across a landscape that has become increasingly dangerous, heading towards a precarious future as a last resort.

Michelle takes the viewer beyond what is expected. She humanizes the real-life individuals behind the polarizing poilitical debate and draws attention to the underlying causes behind this migration. She wants the viewer to see and feel the humanity of these people who seek no more than security and prosperity that they imagine we live with in the United States.
