Many of the students who attend Bowie High School in El Paso, Texas, have to commute to school: over the bridge and across the border that separates their school from their homes in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. For many of these students, sports represent one possible route to a better life. We observe three of these students as they navigate academics and their athletic competition, while also contending with language barriers, a school in need of greater funding, and familial strife.
