The New Americans is a documentary series that interweaves stories of contemporary immigrants and refugees, following them from the homelands and refugee camps to their first pivotal years in America. In Hardball Dreams we will follow the story of two Dominican baseball players, Ricardo and Jose, from the Dodgers camp in Santo Domingo to spring training in Florida and through their first years in America playing professional baseball in places as far-flung and overwhelmingly white as Great Falls, Montana. In Kansas Stories we will learn about two meatpacking families and their struggle to reunite with their children – the Flores, originally from Guanajuato, Mexico, and the Caos, refugees from Vietnam.
