Violent hurricanes and severe drought have decimated once fertile areas of Central America, with the region's rural poor worst affected. Hunger and child malnourishment is widespread, prompting an exodus of migrants to the United States. Reporter Guillermo Galdos tracks the journey of Gonzalo, who desperate to give his family a better life, risks his own by employing a network of people smugglers to illegally enter the US. The film reveals how climate migrants have become a valuable commodity in a booming trade and in a region controlled by crime cartels, some are paying the ultimate price.
