The Invisible Crisis is a film about women migrants fleeing violence and instability in their home countries, some who are victims of systemic human rights abuses in their countries of origin, come to the U.S. seeking to survive and to save the lives of their children. Yet upon arrival to the United States, women face being abused by a system that fails to recognize their plight and their humanity.
