Their faces have changed, not their reasons: in flight from poverty, persecution and war, they are drawn by the shimmering promise of America. Destination America looks at the driving forces that have compelled individuals to immigrate to America for centuries and have remained constant throughout history-economic opportunity, religious freedom and artistic expression.
As well, the series looks at the particular forces that drive women to come to America in search of opportunity and the basic human rights they had been denied in their homelands. Dramatic contemporary stories are the centerpiece of each episode along with historic portraits of immigrants who came before.
