Seventy-two miles. That’s the space between Nogales, Mexico and Tucson, Arizona—and the world of distance that separates a mother at a shelter and her American-born husband and children. 72 Miles to Go... follows a splintered family over 10 years of strength, struggle and love, as they face the profoundly personal drama of immigration.
