"We were so moved by this awesome film.  It was so touching to see this film that puts such a human face to the struggle of immigrants.  The three of you were masterful in the creation of this important film.  Needs to be seen everywhere.  Should be part of Jr/Sr. & college courses."

"Dr. Fernandez's story is emblematic of so many immigrant families seeking an opportunity to live safely, and striving to reach their full potential.  The film conveys the love and determination that propelled them to follow their dream.  This film needs to be seen far and wide.  It has the power to touch hearts and change minds to be more open to different people.  THANK YOU."

"Simply put, I was moved to tears.  What a remarkable story in the achievement of the American Dream."

"A story about a heart surgeon that is all heart."
