The journeys of immigrants to America are explored in this fascinating PBS series by filmmaker David Grubin. Each modern-day tale is put into its historical context as the reasons for migration to the U.S. are examined. Economic opportunity compels passage through "The Golden Door"; artistic and religious freedoms underscore "The Art of Departure" and "The Earth Is the Lord's"; and human rights inspire "Breaking Free: A Woman's Journey."
