CHICAGO – The immigrant “crisis” in the United States is discussed mostly in political generalities as if those seeking a better life are subhuman. “Under the Same Moon” focuses on the real faces of these people through a 10-year-old Mexican boy who risks everything in a journey to reunite with his mother in Los Angeles.

Kate del Castillo is Rosario: a Mexican immigrant who has entered the U.S. illegally to gather more income to send to her mother and son in Mexico. She has been gone for several years and suffers severe heartache when she realizes her small boy is about to turn 10 years old.

Though cared for and nurtured by his grandmother, the boy – Carlitos (played by the excellent Adrian Alonso) – yearns to see his mother again.
