A pair of identical 17 year old twins flee the gang-culture of El Salvador and are arrested after crossing the American border. What happens next? They’re reunited with an older brother in California and then, their real struggles begin. Getting Green Cards; getting an education; finding jobs to pay off the family debt their flight to El Norte incurred. Lauren Markham wrote the exceptional book THE FAR AWAY BROTHERS about their story.
