Married in 1988, Linda and Sixto Valdez learn to love each other s very different families and cultures, raising their child to walk proudly in both worlds.
Revealing the tragedies and ultimately the triumphs that emerge when two families living on different sides of the border come together, "Crossing the Line" cuts through the fears and preconceptions that fuel the continuing political turmoil over immigration. It is a story America needs to hear."
