Program Title: The Long Journey Home
Description: Nati Garcia’s childhood was marked by questions. The daughter of Guatemalan refugees didn’t know where her parents came from or why they fled. In fact, they barely spoke. So when she was sexually assaulted at the age of eight, she didn’t know who to talk to. The Long Journey Home explores what Nati went through to heal and discover her own past.
