In this video, Rodolfo Santiago Martínez tells us about his journey as a migrant to the United States, where he spent several years working in the construction industry and starting a family with a woman living in that country. After almost a decade and two children, and following a separation from his partner, Rodolfo is arrested in a convenience store while he was drinking a soda and is sent to prison for six months before being deported to Mexico. His story emphasizes how the imponderables of everyday life can severely impact the destiny of a person and their family and asks if seeking the dream of a life in the United States is the only way to progress, given that in Mexico he was finally able to partially redress his life.
