Americano! is the true and inspiring life story of Tony Valdovinos and is based on Tony’s life and the challenges, perils — and promise — faced by DREAMers. After 9/11, Tony wanted to enlist in the U.S. Marine Corps on his 18th birthday to serve the country he loves, only to learn he was undocumented. Tony was brought to the U.S. from Mexico when he was two years old. Like other DREAMers, Valdovinos grew up American and did not know of his undocumented status. Americano! chronicles 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 inspirational ways.
