The Door is proud to have been chosen by Optimist as the impact partner for their award-winning documentary, Five Years North, a coming-of-age story of Luis, an undocumented Guatemalan boy who arrives in New York City alone. Throughout the film, we observe Luis as he balances the many facets of his new life—including work, school, and his mental health—all while Judy, a Cuban-American Ice officer, patrols his neighborhood. 

At The Door, we serve young people like Luis every day. Watch Five Years North online now on PBS’s World Channel or visit www.fiveyearsnorth.org to learn more.
