The remarkable story of Dr. Harold Fernandez, immigrant from Colombia, who is now one of the top cardiac surgeons in New York
The true story of an undocumented immigrant who traveled as a 13 year-old with his 11 year-old brother through the Bermuda Triangle during hurricane season to join their parents whom they had not seen in years. The family fled the most dangerous city in the world - Medellin, Colombia -- which was infested with drugs, gangs and guns. Struggling to learn English and catch up with his American classmates, Harold Fernandez's journey took him eventually to Princeton University, where his undocumented status was revealed, endangering his entire family. He overcame much hardship, fear and huge obstacles to go on to Harvard Medical School and to get where he is today -- one of the top cardiac surgeons in the New York metro region. immigrants documentary film
