Main shooting locations: Sinaloa State, Mexico
Main sequences: Every harvest season, an estimated 300,000 children between the ages of 6 and 14 migrate to northern Mexico along with their parents, who have been contracted to work in the fields. At about age 10, half of those children begin working, and the number rises sharply as the children get older, depriving them of education and often endangering their health and safety.
