Synopsis

‘Born on a Journey’ depicts intimate portraits of three pregnant undocumented immigrants who have settled in the surrounding areas of Bogotá, Colombia. After leaving their families in Venezuela, Aura, Sabrina, and Sarai face new challenges in their new home as they navigate local policies and social networks to gain access to healthcare services. Throughout the film, they recall their experiences as undocumented immigrants and long with nostalgia for their families back in Venezuela as they try to build a new future in Colombia.
