Americans ! is the true and inspiring life story of Tony Valdovinos and is based on Tony’s life and the challenges, perils – and promises – faced by DREAMers. After September 11, Tony wanted to enlist in the US Marine Corps on his 18th birthday to serve the country he loves, only to learn he was undocumented. Tony was brought from Mexico to the United States at the age of two. Like other DREAMers, Valdovinos grew up in the United States and was unaware of his undocumented status. Americans ! recounts his emotional journey and uncertain status in the country he loves, and shows how Tony and other DREAMers serve their country in other compelling and inspiring ways.
