A tale of struggle and empowerment, Overland follows the young immigrant Noemi as she navigates the dangerous twists and turns of an undocumented life in America. The film calls attention to the hardship and patriarchal prejudice that often await newcomers to the so-called “land of plenty” while also focusing on the story of one bold Latina. Poignant dialogue and a liberating final shot make Overland a film that burns as brightly as its brave heroine.
