There are few things that come to mind which are more American than an immigrant coming to this country to fulfill their dreams. After all, we are a nation built on the backs of immigrants. So when I went searching for my first biopic I wanted to tell a story of someone defying the odds.
I wanted that classic American tale of someone coming to this country, looking to fulfill their dreams, and achieving them. When I first reached out to Gabby Franco, I knew a little bit about her backstory.
What I didn’t know, what I was about to find out, was that Gabby’s story was one which required incredible mental toughness and discipline to survive here.
