The U Turn: A Transformational Journey
Q& A after the screening with Filmmaker Luis Argueta

The film showcases the U-Visa, an immigration relief part of the VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) in much need dissemination and understanding by immigrant workers, immigration right advocate and law-enforcement.
