To the Bone, a Short Film by Erin Li

In a mere eight minutes, To the Bone tells the coming-of-age story of a preteen girl, her brother and father, and the plight of migrant farmworkers. After watching this slice of life that shows the reality of bearing hours of picking in heat despite exhaustion and in less-than-human conditions, you would think this girl would be broken, but her spirit stays strong…and rebellious.  In a turn of events, and in hopes of helping her brother, she challenges the status quo. What happens next will leave you with your jaw hanging.
