Story: Laura and Valentina are teenagers just trying to make it through another day in middle school.
However, unlike many of their peers, they are refugees from Central America who have fled
brutal violence in their home countries to find shelter and pursue their dreams in the USA. Step
inside their shoes, hear their stories, see their struggle, and feel their strength as we move
through their day. Óyeme, the Beautiful brings to light the undaunted courage and beautiful
spirit that fuels these young people, and teaches us the power of friendship, family, and hope.
