                    Mojados is an eye-opening documentary filmed over the
        course of ten days that follows four men into the desperate world
        of illegal immigration. Alongside Bear, Tiger, Handsome, and Old
         Man, director Tommy Davis takes a 120 mile cross-desert journey
         that has been traveled innumerable times by nameless immigrants
         who ? like these four young migrants from Michoacan, Mexico ? all
         had the simple, American dream for a better future. Davis brings
         to life the often unheard hopes and stories of these migrants as
         their dehydrated days evading the U.S. Border Patrol turn into
         sub-zero nights filled with barbed wire, brutal storms and the
         ever-present confrontation with death that is reality for the tens
         of thousands of illegal immigrants who make a similar journey into
         the United States every year.
