Every year there are more than 400,000 American children who are torn away from their friends, schools and homes to pick the food we all eat. Zulema, Perla and Victor labor as migrant farm workers, sacrificing their own childhoods to help their families survive. THE HARVEST/LA COSECHA profiles these three as they journey from the scorching heat of Texas onion fields to the winter snows of the Michigan apple orchards and back south to the humidity of Florida's tomato fields to follow the harvest. From the Producers of the Academy-Award® nominated film, WAR/DANCE and Executive Producer Eva Longoria, this award-winning documentary provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of these children who struggle to dream while working 12 14 hours a day, 7 days a week to feed America.

It doesn't seem like the camera is as embedded with these hard-luck travelers as in Which Way Home or Nine Star Hotel. Never got to really know the main subjects and, being that they were youngsters, would have been nice to follow them for 4 years to see their growth.
The film H2 Worker also would be a film with a similar topic but with a bigger impact than this one. Maybe more data and less slow moments would have better.
